All of the extra energy that has nowhere to go — it’s kinda like a great big storm that wipes out an entire town & then after the winds, waters, fires, dusts settles, you’re left standing there alone and with very little purpose or hope — grasping at every opportunity to feel connected with the outside world. My loved one got his GED in jail and I am so proud of him — wish I could tell him congratulations and give him my love and let him know how big of a deal that truly is. What an amazing thing to have happen in such an awful place. My children have always been my shining stars and give me hope for the future and reason to want to push onward with love for my family on my lips and in my heart. I was engaged to get married — I miss my man so much. I miss my kids so much.
