The Battle

When you feel like turning away, like the battle is never ending, like there is no hope.

Lay next to her and listen to her dreams, support her through her climb, and hold her hand through her nightmares.

Don’t turn away.

You are her hope.

The battle will end.




This post is dedicated to MamaRobinJ.

It was also inspired by her.

    Thank you. I’m marching on – towards the end.

    This was positively the most beautiful thing I have ever read. I will treasure this and remember it when stress gets too much and my Little Diva needs help!

      So true, sometimes we don’t need to say a lot to fill the room with words.

    Aww, Leigh Ann, you’re awesome! What a great friend you are.

    I’ve been thinking of Robin too ever since that post. I started drafting up a reply too that I was going to post on my blog. Just couldn’t get anything to come out right. Robin, if you’re lurking, just know that I’m here for you too!
