Peace.




Although I am going through this terrible divorce that tore apart my family, I am finally finding peace again. I had to redefine what a family is to me and learn that my "family" will NEVER leave me and that I can find so much peace in that. My journey has been so hard but I can't tell you how grateful I am for every step. Good and bad. I have been quiet in the last year. I find it better not to vent my angry and ugly emotions on a public blog...and there have been lots of ups and downs. In this new year....the word "tribe" was whispered in my ear one morning. I KNOW that this word will have a lot of meaning for me in the new year...it already has. I just want you all to know how much I treasured the thoughts of kindness that were sent to me and the words of encouragement given to me in the last two years...the days when I felt paralyzed and the tears didn't stop flowing. The kindness given to me when I couldn't give anything in return....I am so grateful and thankful. xoxo

BE STRONG, change comes! change is good. My friend just got a divorce also. She felt very fearful. Now she is feeling much better, no more fights, and her child actually loves having a second PEACEFUL come to visit.
Also she has enjoyed decorating her new little apartment.
