Finding Peace

The day had not gone how I had hoped. My patience had run dry and my irritation was stronger then my love. It was the end of the day and I snuggled up next to Esperanza and Bruce held Gryphin. Prayers started. “For prayers tonight let’s lay hands on the person beside you and ask…

The Flood
