    If it had not been for the Lord on my side, in 2008 when my family was rocked and tested I don't know what I would have done but because he is such a good God he kept me sane, strong and steadfast .

    God saw fit to keep me as I took that 4 year journey with my son, oh there were some sleepless nights and I shedded tears but I always remembered if it had not been for the Lord on my side.
