A small shout out to my Fairy Godmother, Frigg, whomever… thank you. Sometimes you get so busy with your life’s journey that you forget there are side quests to be completed.
Months ago this blog was set up to be a writing space for my husband and I to work on our marriage and our book, but as soon as the ink dried on my account my husband decided to walk away.
Not just from the book, or the blog, but from the marriage as a whole. I was shocked, but it wasn’t deterred. Rather than just revel in my own pity, I decided to make the most of this and write about the deterioration instead.
Well, thank you world for the slap in the face I needed. Thank you for showing me how far away from my center I was, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to grow and learn from it, no matter how painful it has been.
In the last several months I have been on a journey, and I am still in its midst. I am growing beyond the cocoon of trauma I was forged in… and the results must now be visible to others.
How can I tell? I just lived a small miracle… my husband said to me on Sunday “you know we should really write that book”. And I’ve never been happier… or more terrified.
