@itumelanin commented "I had to live with the pain of losing my mom from an early age and the only reason I keep going on is a verse from Revelation 21:4. It took me a while for a bible scripture to sink in and only after two decades I am able to accept.

Healing from bereavement is a lifetime journey I’ve come to learn, and there’s no better way to heal than to let the hurt overflow and release with the tides of time Mma ka Forbes,|
