Hope For Tomorrow
Sue sat on her couch, tears streaming down her face. Her whole world was being torn apart, and she had no way of knowing how to stop it. The blue scrapbook was open. She didn’t know why she was torturing herself this way, looking at a book with precious memories she had painstakingly put together. In one single moment, everything had changed. Sobbing quietly, she flipped another page, one that took her breath away. The page showed her family, all together, happy and joyful. Will we ever be that way again? Her family was about to be destroyed, never to be the same again, all because of one choice. Why, Lord? Why is this happening? No answer came. Sue was devastated. Her heart felt as if it were being smashed into tiny pieces. How could things have turned out this way? How could one person change the course of their lives without even realizing the consequences of their actions? Sue sighed heavily and closing her eyes, she leaned against the couch. Her mind drifted back to how it all began.
