1. Visiting from the Beloved Brews.
    Thank you so much for this post!
    Thank you for sharing your heart, and for the song I’d never heard before, Wash. It hits a spot in me, a tender spot for my daughter. Secrets, lies, anxiety, how desperately we need to let his words wash over us.
    I’m SO GLAD that God met you in the experience with your kids. I bless him for working in your life!
    (I’m gushing, sorry.)
    Great to meet you.

    1. Beth,
      Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words. I am so thankful the song blessed you ~ the lyrics are so very powerful and her story on YouTube is powerful too! (Ilonka – Something Beautiful). I am so thankful you stopped by. Your comment encouraged my heart.

  2. Oh Michelle. I’m so sorry that happened, and I’m grateful you all are ok. I admire how you communicate with your children in the midst of their fears. How sad that out of indescribable fear you had to keep silent as a child. I’m so glad God is giving you the courage to speak out today. May Jesus wrap the little girl inside you in His safe and loving arms!

  3. Dear Michelle, Thanks, beautiful writing. What a scary accident, but what a blessing! I thanks God that you was not crashed neither as a little girl before nor a mature woman now. You are incredible strong. It is a blessing for me to read your writing. Thanks.

    1. Yanzhen,

  4. Michelle,
    This is my first time to your blog, and I was very touched by your story. I am sorry about the hurt you experienced when you were a little girl. I understand too well how the selfishness of others can ‘wreck’ us. But our God is greater. He has promised to restore our brokenness for good!
    Thank you for following my blog at incrementalhealing.wordpress.com I am going to subscribe here as well. I am looking forward to getting to know you better. I pray we can be an encouragement to one another as we walk this path toward wholeness and joy!

    1. Kamea,
      Amen! He will restore our brokenness for good! Thank you for following, and I too look forward to journeying together! Your words have blessed me!

    1. Karmen,
      So good to hear from you! I am so thankful for you and for your encouragement. I love your verse and your tagline on your blog!! It’s the Truth and you do it well. You inspire me 🙂 Thank you!!

  5. Loved the song at the end…so peaceful and true…soothing to the soul. Thanks for sharing your story. It is an encouragement to me. I know only too well about carrying secrets on little shoulders. It was never intended for us to carry them…I’m so glad that God meets us where we are and carries us in our pain.

    1. Liz,
      Thank you for your kind words. That song has been such a blessing to me! I am thankful this post encouraged you, but I am so sorry for your pain. Praise Jesus that He carries us and brings others alongside us in this journey to remind us that we are not alone! Thank you for your courage and transparency!
