Relationships and marriages are hard and prior to contrary belief, they seem to get harder the more time you’ve been together. I always thought that after you’ve been with your partner for so long, things would be seamless. You live together, you know each other almost as well as you know yourself. Doesn’t that automatically… Continue reading Why you should never stop dating your spouse, no matter how long you’ve been together.
Perfection breeds discontent. Read that again. Perfection breeds discontent! We all do it. I’m guilty too. We live in a society that demands we have luxury cars with all the bells and whistles. We follow fashion trends with name brands and expensive clothing. We will even redecorate our homes to follow the newest decor styles,… Continue reading You’re soul will never be at peace if you keep demanding more
I think we have all been in that place. The place where we thought we had met the person we were going to spend the rest of our lives with. The person that you couldn’t imagine doing life without.

As I scroll through my social media, I see more people ready for 2019 to end rather than sharing their blessings from the year. I was one of those people initially.

I am more emotional these days than I have been in a long time. I went through such a period of sadness, then another long period of strength. Now I am in this intense season of gratitude.

It has been 273 days since the night my husband came home and told me he wanted a divorce. That is 9 months since my whole world changed.
