I just wanted to let you all know that I made it home. The journey wasn’t an easy one, but it didn’t take too long.

Everything is so pretty here, so white, so fresh and new. I wish that you all could close your eyes and that you could see it too.

Please try not to be sad for me. Try to understand God is taking care of me… I’m in the shelter of His hands.

Here there is no sadness, no sorrow, and no pain. Here there is no crying and I’ll never hurt again.

Here it is so peaceful when all the angels sing. I really have to go for now….I’ve just got to try my wings.
