  1. Oh how tragic to lose the unrequited love, but to find love in Him — His acceptance, joy, peace, and understanding — I’d say she got the better deal ❤ What an unexpectedly beautiful take on my placid image….I am indeed honored your words were so inspired by it ❤ Thank you for joining us writing our tales and stories 🙂
