In Michigan, on July 4, 2014, my son and I lost both his father and his uncle in a very tragic car accident, two sweet individuals gone in the blink of an eye. 45 minutes prior, we were smiling, laughing, enjoying fireworks. As we departed, we gave our hugs and kisses and we promised to see each other the next day. That day never came and till this day, I sometimes re-live every moment up until arriving on the accident scene. I pray that God continues to grant me peace and understanding, I’m only 24, a single mom, and I never thought I would be completing this journey without his father. I know I’m not alone, because God has continued to love me and show his grace and mercy. He brought me through one of the most challenging times of my life. My relationship with him has deepened and I have a greater understanding of life and transition. No matter the circumstance or situation, I pray that everyone finds peace in difficult times. Please continue to pray for me and my family.
