DISCLAIMER: I don't own these characters, nor am I making any money from them. I merely borrow them from time to time.
The day I decided there was definitely a God, was the day my beloved Jethro confessed to me that, upon hearing the news about Shannon and Kelly, he had contemplated taking his own life.
For the first time in my life, I did not know what to say, because anything would have sounded wrong.
I could not tell him how relieved I was, as even thinking it made me feel guilty. Even to this day, if I could have done so, I would have taken their places.
God or not, I am thankful every day that I still have Jethro.
