He didn’t even say words, just kind of… pointed at them, and made an incredulous questioning sound that I can best describe as a ...

I just flashed back… To the first time I ever saw scars on someone. I was probably 10… it was on the left arm of my ex boyfriend Kristopher. I saw while he was smoking a cig, he got hot and rolled up his sweatshirt sleeves… asked me if I wanted a drag of his cig. And I saw his arm. Covered in scars from one side of his arm to the other. They were “train tracks” and he told me, “it s...

—Escúchame, hijo. Ben fue tras la mejor amiga de su hermana, sabiendo que pagaría un infierno si la cagaba. Le propuso una auténtica relación desde el principio, una que podría haber prosperado en algo real. Ahora, piensa de nuevo en lo que tú le ofreciste, una aventura que durara unos pocos meses sin conexión después de eso. Nunca ni siquiera le preguntaste su apellido mientras viví...

Some one I really care/cared about, who also screwed me over, gave me this. Opra is one of the greatest most successful African American, women period of our time. This book is about healing and coping with stress and trauma, and above pasts. This book couldn't be more perfect for this season. That person even tho at the time giving a gift kindly couldn't have imagined it would be so perfectly placed, n they probably did not place it. I do kind of hope it disappoints them that God used their gift in ways they never could have thought of. God uses this as an example of using everything for our good.
