People ask how I'm doing, and I often smile and say, “fine”; but what I don't tell them is that my heart aches for my prodigal girl….
Though the years would show that the bond hasn't been strong for quite some time, she's still my girl, and I'm her mom….that's an unspoken bond that will never die.
The day she walked out, she took a piece of my heart with her; the piece that is lonely and longing for our hearts to be united
The piece that wants the hurting to stop and for her to see our love rather than her continually trying to hurt us more
I'm surrounded by my four other babies,who fill my life with sunshine and joy, and I cherish them more now than ever before….
Yet a mama never forgets even one of her children, and that prodigal leaves a gaping space in this mama's heart that only God can heal.
