    I was verbally abused as a child…words are powerful…they cut deep and never really fade.
    This is beautiful friend xoxo

      Darling Kimberly, I completely understand. Here is a warm hug. I’ve faced abuse – and you’re right about it never really going away. It lurks in a corner of the mind, even when we’re moving on and waits to poke us when we need it the least. Hugs.
