To: Tiffany Lynn, my sister
Life is a mountain we must all climb. Your salvation, that saving grace, is inside you waiting to be uncovered. Like a fire left alone, it waits for you to uncover the embers and kindle a flame. Build a roaring fire to light and warm the world. And when the blaze is hot enough, forge a sword and summon the courage to fight your demons….
That … someday, you will stand on the mountain top with all the scars to remind you where you’ve been; scars of battles lost and won. And your kids look up from the valley, battered and broken from life’s battles. They look up at you on top of that mountain holding a sword forged from a single flame and find the courage to go on. And you become that flame in them, reborn from the ashes….
BE THAT FLAME….
