THE GPYB Header!
In the beginning of GPYB, it gives the ROADMAP to recovery...to healing a broken heart....the header on this blog changes as the road changes.
The header represents the road to recovery...sometimes sunny, sometimes rainy...sometimes light and sometimes dark....but we are on it together and YOU CAN DO IT!
