God sighed, when your at your weakest i’m always stronger. The car brakes down, the bank calls in the mortgage, her sister tells her to divorce him, you can do better she says, the pressure is mounting, even her close friends disagree with her, how could you put up with it, he’s useless, look at him.

When the going was tough, she ran, forgot the one condition all great love is based upon, endurance.
