Throughout Life, You Make Choices

Dear Mother Laura,

I was one born in hell. I was conceived by two evil people in order to do whatever criminal plans they considered, but I can confirm that you are right to say that no matter how bad a situation was in our childhood, we still have a choice of what to do with what is. Even as a child, I made my choice: I considered school as my main ticket out. I was a fighter and chose to use my intelligence to save me and to make it out of there. They robbed me of everything they could, except of my soul, which of course no one can just simply take. For a long time, I was in a survival mode, but I got out.  First, to university and then with my license in hand, I left my home country and started from zero. But all the unhealthy familiarity and the lack of knowing how to deal with a normal life almost got me off track. It took me many years to get rid of all my baggage and reconstruct myself. I became my own architect and I love to be alive more and more.  I was still in my hole in 2009 when your guidance began to make me feel like a safe, normal person. You refocused the light on that path I was trying keep, but with the years gone by, it had become less visible.

So I thank you for making my life an easier journey, but especially a meaningful one. Thank you for being the mom I never had. Thank you for your love and thank you for your fight for good, justice and the right thing to do. Thank you for helping me saving the child I was.

God bless you,
