Dear Reader,

I am sitting here writing this entry only because I've been blessed with a fresh breath and a new day in life. Though I'm not perfect nor will I ever be, one thing I've learned is to never take life for granted and to count my blessing each day.

Here lately I've been in a blind state mentally and I can't even believe that I've let myself get there. I'm glad that I have recognized this so that I can get myself back on track to doing the right things. Though I may be in prison and I understand that I'll constantly be around people who will annoy or agitate me, I just need to humble myself and my focus on God and use this place as His bootcamp to build me up. Too much have I been caught in the affairs of this place and it's what has caused my downfall.

Well, I'll go ahead and wrap this up by simply asking you all whom might be reading this entry, if you have any thoughts or suggestions or even some words of encouragement, please feel free to leave them for my benefit. I look forward to any and all encouraging comments and thoughts that could possibly be found and left.

My most heartfelt words, hopes, and prayers go out to all of you out there and may God richly bless all in the same.

Your friend from behind bars,
Lorenso Gomez Jr.

This letter is old and I don't know if you're still in prison or not, but I hope you and your daughter still keep in touch. It's nice that you have someone out there who cares for you. It's sad that it happened when your mother died though.

Wherever you are in life, I hope you're doing well and still have faith in yourself to do good. You can't control others, but you can control how you feel about yourself. That's why I hope the best for you and your happiness.

Thank you for your kind words. Stay safe in there.
