Tonight I discovered.....

Friday, April 15, 2011

Dear Diary,

Tonight I discovered my nightmare is swiftly becoming my granddaughters nightmare.

The nightmare that arises from abuse, isolation and self-loathing.

The nightmare that follows you even during your waking hours.

The nightmare that whispers you will never be safe.

The nightmare that glares growling you will always be alone.

The nightmare that taunts and teasings telling you you don't count, you don't matter and that the world would be a better place if you were not in it.

The nightmare that encouraged me to slit my wrists at the tender age of 9 years old.

My grandmother helped me.

I am her grandmother.

I must help her.

But how?

    The warmth of your love and the safety of your embrace means a lot to your granddaughter. I am praying for both of you right now Jazzy! Take care and pray for wisdom, the Lord is very generous with it and with his grace and mercy! Praise God!

    Only God can bring some good out of these tragic events. As her grandmother, I know that you are praying for her and doing all you can to help her through these horrific life changing events! You and I both know that the battle is truly the Lord's and that our part consists in attentively listening for and following his instructions as to the role we are to play in the battle.

    Praying for you and your granddaughter!
