This is me in the middle of the night doing meditation and scripture while I count my blessings. I have just completed my book and I feel like the Lord has given me this day to give Him glory and praise. The significance of the purple shoes is that they were a Christmas gift from my GirlMic/Leslie several years ago. I wrote the words “Smile, Listen, and Touch” in a Divine Magazine article on survivors in 2013. I am writing and offering hope and encouragement as I walk this path of grief because I believe in the LORD.
