Hey Victoria! It is me Sherri Watters. I was going back through my blog and found your message. Sorry I am so slow. This is beautiful! I was reminded how many things I have to thank my God for! Thank you for words of wisdom and grace. I have thought many times about you since that night at the Leland concert, of the beauty and grace the Lord has blessed you with. The way in which you will touch lives to make a big difference through your pain. I am sorry and thankful all at the same time. You blessed my heart in a way I can not easily express but know this I am challenged to walk in love and humility after meeting you! I pray that God will continue to show you ways toward healing and opportunities for you to share a powerful story with a lost and hurting world. Take care and keep in touch. Are you on facebook? Let me know.
