Dear Olivia ( @olivia),
I wish you would stay. I understand life gets busy. I understand that there may be other sites you wish to explore.
But I want you to know that there are writers, young and older, from many different places and backgrounds who may need to hear what you alone can share or say. Each of us needs encouragement. God has given each of us and you too a special and unique gift and stories to tell. You are invested with God’s spark to provide light to others who need to hear what you have learned and are learning. This community is like a family here. If you still want to go, we will miss you, little sister.
I am much older, so the term “little” is not a diminutive term, but one of recognition that there is a truth in your tag line:
Even the smallest person can change the course of the future. -JRR Tolkien
You are chosen to make a difference.
