    • Hello, dear Millie! You must know how often I think of you and Paul whenever I share this part of my story. Thank you for allowing God to use you to be one of the people who walked with me through those very dark years – and saved me from myself!
      God bless you both.

    • Me, too, Barbara!! I also want to thank you for allowing God to use you in my life during a recent trial. Praise God, I wasn’t suicidal – but I most definitely needed a friend!

  2. What a wonderful article! I hate that you were in so much pain. I honestly believe that you are a walking miracle. I love you so much

    • Thank you, Kathy! Thank you for being there for me so many times. I love you very, very much. And you’re right: I am a walking miracle of God’s compassion and grace.

  3. Happy Birthday week Sheryl! Thanks be to God that he has tamed your “demons”. I am so sorry that I never knew of your struggles. My heart aches for all of those who struggle with feelings that ending their lives is the only way to cope.
    God Bless You dear, sweet lady. I am sending huge hugs your way.

      And thank you, also, for the huge hugs!

  4. Every day that you are alive is a blessing to me & to all who are touched by your compassion, love, & support. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have you as my mother. I love you very much & may you have a wonderful birthday!

    • Thank you, Josh. I love you very much, too – and thank God for protecting me so that I could have the privilege of being your mom. You are one of my biggest blessings.
      And I always love it when you visit my blog and leave a comment, son.

    • I couldn’t wait to respond to you until I got home so I’m glad we were able to connect using email using my phone. (I don’t know how to respond to comments on my blog on my phone.) Keep in touch, ME. I meant what I said in my email to you. We’ll get through this together – along with your counselor. Will you please give her a call? I’ll be praying for you.
