In the face of extreme adversity and difficulty,
my usual response has been to walk away from a person or a situation.
I move on and start anew.
But there are certain people and situations
I shall never walk away from – no matter what.
I hope they know who they are.
I try to tell them in so many words that I shall never leave;
but, more than words, I hope I have shown by my actions
that I shall never walk away and will always be present for them.
It is in the same manner that I hold on to the Lord’s promise
that he shall always be with me – no matter what.
