Life Changes

It is with sadness that I write about the dramatic changes that my life has taken in the last few weeks. My husband of 12 years has moved out and we have taken steps to ultimately divorce. These are words that I never expected to come out of my mouth, but here I am saying them. The boys are handling themselves very well and we are talking openly about all the things that will change.
We have to sell the house so we are signing the papers this afternoon. I told both older boys and at first they did fine but this morning Tyler was visibly upset at the fact that the sign would be going up so quickly. Unfortunately there isn't another way and I am sad as well. I expected to stay here for several more years, but as we all know, life can throw you a curve ball at anytime. We are never prepared for it.
For my entire adult life I have been a firm believer that God doesn't give you any more then you can handle, he must think I am Superwoman then!
I welcome your comments as well as suggestion to make this time of transition easier for the kids. So far I have been as honest as possible, my #1 goal is to give them the best life that I can. God has good things in store for all of us, we just don't know what they are.


  1. You are Superwoman -God declared that long ago. You can and will get through this, and brighter days are ahead for you. You have three very special reasons to keep you going, and lots of people praying and supporting you.

  2. I saw your comment on my blog and came over to see if we could set something up between Noodle and Jack. ;-) I am so sorry to hear your news, I bet it sounds shocking to even type it. I don't know a lot about these things, but it sounds like you are headed in the right direction. Being open and honest with your children is so very important. As a former teacher, the only other thing I can say is that if possible it's best to keep negative comments about your spouse away from your children's ears. It can make them confused and depressed. Again, even from your brief summary it sounds like you already know that. I'm sending best wishes that you stay a Superwoman {in front of your kids} and still allow yourself to grieve when you need it. As you and I know with our miracle babies, God gives you what he thinks you can handle, or even what you can learn to handle. I'll be thinking of you as you go through this journey.

  3. I am so sorry you have to go through this hurt. My parents got a divorce about five years ago. I was 23 years old. It was hard to go through but a little different since it was not a very good marriage with a lot of drinking and domestic violence by my dad. I know God has something great planned for you around the corner.
