GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT . . .
I waited until the night he tried to kill me.
Waking up in the hospital I was banged and battered, but I wasn't broken. The wreck had been fatal but miraculously I had been spared with only bumps and bruises. He wanted to kill me. He said so as he hit me then dragged me out and threw me into the truck.
Now he was dead.
He was dead and I was free.

HOW DO YOU FIND STRENGTH TO CONTINUE WITH A LIFE THAT HAS DEALT SUCH PAIN. YOU NEVER KNOW HOW STRONG YOU ARE UNTIL BEING STRONG IS THE ONLY CHOICE YOU HAVE.
