This woman writes of leaving an abusive relationship of many years, "I set fire to the life that was hurting me. An aromatic sense of hope came from that painful fire, and I am renewed, and restored. I've recaptured the power and hope that I once had in my youth, before the long years of pain. ...I am reborn."
Oh, my sister -- may you soar ever upwards with fire in your wings.
