It’s not just another story but one I have been working on for a while. In brief
It is my life’s story … He drank I waited. I prayed, I worried

try to figure it out all at once … but let go and let god is all worth the low price we pay.
Wish I could stay and share with you more but I would have to write the twenty-nine years of
pain/heartache/rejection/healing … in all the years it took to shape us … we all blessed … I love you Terry Flowers Sr. Your Wife … Ruthie Flowers
