Never by Katrina

Never shall I forget that first night, the first long night of my recovery.
Never shall I forget that hospital.
Never shall I forget the rushing doctors and nurses surrounding my head, stitching my wounds.

Never shall I forget the blood.
Never shall I forget the bright lights, the smell of alcohol.
Never shall I forget the worried looks, the tears.
Never shall I forget the feeling of not knowing whether I would wake up the next morning.

Never shall I forget the loneliness.
Never shall I forget the knowing that there was more bad news to come.
Never shall I forget the need to stay awake, the pain.
Never shall I forget wondering why God had let this happen.
Never.

    Never shall I forget that day. Never shall I forget that moment. Never shall I forget the love I gained. Never shall I forget the love I lost.
    Love you Katrina

  2. Never shall I forget a phone call at 3:45am Thurs. morning. Never shall I forget calling Lisa and giving her the awful news. Never shall I forget opening the door to her at 4:15am. Never shall I forget the look on her face and us holding each other and being completely heart-broken. Never shall I forget the panic at trying to get a flight asap. Never shall I forget the devastation on my families faces when I saw them. Never shall I forget the love that was surrounding everyone.
    Love you my family
    Mum

    I love you more than you can imagine, Katrina. God loves you even more. I don’t know why things happen the way they do, but I know that you are becoming the strong confident young lady God has called you to be. God uses situations to make us stronger and shape us. “All things work for good for those who love God and who are called according to His purposes.”Romans 8:28 You are called according to His purpose, sweetheart. I am so so sorry that you experienced everything you did. But, I do know that your pain and suffering was not and will never be wasted. God has and will continue to comfort you, He will guide you, and He will use this for His purpose baby girl. You are His beautiful princess. You have already discovered that He has been using this pain. He will not stop. I am very excited to see what He has in store for you. I Love You.

    None of us will ever forget the fear and devestation of that time. Never will I understand either. Please remember that you were NOT alone, and never will be.
