I know we haven't been on very good terms lately. I know I've shouted at you, cursed you, screamed that you had abandoned me.
But right now, this minute, I desperately need you.
If you could please find it in your heart to forgive me and take a little bit of pity on me to help me get through this.
Never have I needed you more.
I have to testify. I am unprepared. I am not ready.
But I have to do this.
And it's going to take a miracle for me to get through it.
Please, please, please, help me get through all four pages without tripping over my words or missing lines.
Help me be clear, concise, and speak from the heart.
Take my words and let them be understood, let them make an impact.
Help me keep from crying (too much) so I don't have to stop or quit part way through.
Help me speak for Craig because he cannot.
I just need to get through this one last piece, and then I can rest.
Your Prodigal Daughter
