Empty Handed

It is with extreme sadness that I removed my wedding band and put it back in the box it came in. My heart is truly broken and I don't know that it will ever be put back together again. I never dreamed that after all these years that my marriage would end. Through the good times and the bad I just never saw this as the end result.
As the weekend of my 12th anniversary approached, I am reminded of all the celebrations, togetherness and affection. I am also reminded of all the recent sadness and broken promises.
My oldest son told me to cross the day off on the calendar and my response was, "No, because that is the day that God put daddy and mommy together and without that day, I wouldn't have him or his 2 brothers."
True sadness and disappointment surrounds me. I am however constantly reminded that I have 3 wonderful reasons to continue to enjoy my life. They will always be the light that shines and that keeps me going.
If God leads you to it, He will lead you through it.


  1. Sending you, Tyler, Matthew, and Jack the biggest hug and all the love in my heart!

  2. Kate I wish I could tell you I know what you are going through, but I can't even begin to imagine. All I can say is that through God all things are possible and your beautiful children will give you the strength you need. You are blessed! Just think of all the headaches Mondo causes me. :)

  3. Dearest Katie. I love you and your three buddies. Things will be better and happiness will soon outshine your tears. Gramma and Bops are watching over you and love you too. Mom
