From Tracie: You Are Loved - Today And Everyday

You Are Loved - Today And Everyday

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Today I wrote LOVE on my arm, as I have done for several years with TWLOHA, and I allowed thankfulness to wash over my heart as I thought about the dark places and seasons I have walked through, and the fact that I'm still here.

Love On Her Arm

When things seem hopeless, and darkness is all around

When the pain is closing in, and you don't know how to make it stop

Please remember...

Hurting yourself is never the answer.

You are loved.

Your presence makes a difference in this world.

You are loved.

There is hope.

You are loved.

Write Love On Her Arms

Suicide is one of the top 10 causes of death in the United States, and accounts for around 40,000 deaths per year and an estimated 1 million deaths worldwide.

If you are feeling desperate, alone or helpless, or know someone who is, please call 1-800-273-TALK (8255), and know that there is hope. 


  1. I love you Tracie. And thank you for this beautiful post.

  2. What a beautiful post and sentiment.

  3. I am so glad you're still here too.

  4. I tried to comment yesterday and the computer just laughed at me at that time so I'll say it again now so you can see it... I am so glad you are here to write love on your arms. God bless people (like you) who share His hope with others. Much love!

  5. My brother committed suicide.

    I, while never going there, have trouble loving myself. Or let's just say I have all the tools but it requires effort. Great post, my friend.

    1. Oh Jennie. I love you, and I'm so sorry for your loss.

      You deserve all the love in the world. I know it is hard, but keep using those tools. You are worth it. <3

  6. xo my friend. You are forever loved.
