Surviving Has Side Effects

That's the best I can think of .....surviving has side effects

And this is my resolution...to remember God graced my life with an Angel who was sent here to reveal his work and that the tribulation of this path is not only Her glory but His glory. And we (meaning ALL of us) were miraculously chosen to receive this grace-
