penthouse poorhouse alive stronger and thriving

both my parents owned their businesses. You can say I pretty much had it all growing up and even later in my life I had it all. I always did everything that was expected of me and then some. I was the one everyone/anyone could count on and I didn't ever let anyone down. Then both my parents died. My life as I had always known it was gone. I was devastated by their deaths. I didn't know what to do and really didn't want to live anymore. It has taken me 10+ years (good doctor lol) to get through it all, and by the grace of God and my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ I made it through it and am alive today. I am diffidently a much stronger and wiser person to life these days. And slowly (in my own time) I am "moving on up" again.
