Good morning my friends!
This past weekend was so much needed.
Family got together for a family day.
Laughing can help in a healing process.
I am absolutely so thankful for my family.
We had so many laughs.
So many smiles.
So many hugs.
So many crazy moments!
Gifts of love given.
Today I get another day to continue the healing.
Today I will work hard at letting go of the pain.
The pain of loving someone for so long that did not love me back.
The pain of losing a man I thought would be there for me forever.
That we would grow old together.
Letting go and accepting that he was not the man I thought he was when we got married.
Today I have the opportunity to accept my situation.
To thrive despite my circumstances.
To allow the emotions to flow,
So I can truly heal.
Something that comes to mind often when I do start feeling like my family is lost is…
We, my children and I, are a family.
Family means so much to me and when my soon to be ex-husband left us I felt like our family was shattered.
That is what truly does hurt the most.
So when she said to me we still are a family she helped me more with that statement than she might ever know.
I hear those words echo in my head often and I smile…
and smile again.
We STILL are a family despite the fact he walked out.
We are close and are here for each other.
My kids are awesome and I love them so very much.
They are what really matters.
They are where I find my strength.
Just looking into their faces…
I know we will be ok.
Until next time keep strong!
