Viva La Vida Melanie.

Melanie woke at 4am with Marie whispering gently in her ear.

“Viva La Vida Melanie.”

{“Live life Melanie.”}


Reaching over to James she felt comforted.

He stirred and held her close. She fell back into a peaceful sleep with Marie’s words comforting her.

“Vous m'avez amené du passé au présent.” whispered Marie

{“You have brought me from the past to the present.”} whispered Marie.

“Pour cela ma sœur il n'y a pas de mots de gratitude trop grands.

Rappelez-vous toujours qui vous êtes et ce que vous pouvez réaliser. L'espoir est éternel, même dans les heures les plus sombres.”

{“For this my sister there are no words of gratitude too great.

Always remember who you are and what you can achieve. Hope is eternal even in the darkest of hours.”}

Remember - you can always change the world.
