We Were Safe
In the car. Four children, five laundry baskets full of our clothes, toiletries and favourite stuffed animals. Pillows, throw blankets, school bags and five empty stomachs. One car full of worry. One prayer that we all say. New hope. Desperate for a new beginning. A phone call… a friend had a feeling to call. Now we have somewhere to go. Never will we go back to the yelling, the chaos, the absence of the other parent and the raging temper that we all feared would pop at any time. God provided a safe place for us to stay until we had our own new place. New life. We were safe.
