This is a very hard post to write. It almost feels as though typing this out and putting it out there for the world to see makes it too real, but the fact is that it is real.
I’ve been married for ten years. There are so many things I need to share about my life the last ten years, but at this moment I can’t share anything except this: Six weeks ago my husband walked out on me and our kids for another woman.
Obviously there are many emotions being felt in our house right now. Shock, sadness, anger – there was no warning. Well, there was some warning (or at least hints of unfaithfulness) now that I look back, but… so much deceit. I just ignored all the signs and believed every word he said because I wanted to.
I would appreciate prayers for my little family as we work through this – it’s all still very new and I’m adjusting to a change in future plans while my kids adjust to the changes in their lives as well. I’m just taking it one day at a time right now and steeping myself in scripture. God has been so amazing through all this – He has shown his presence through this valley of darkness in so many ways. I’m not saying that it has been easy or smooth, but He has given me a strength I didn’t know I had.
This won’t interfere with my blogging (too much), just so you know. This is not the end… it’s a new beginning. And I intend to move forward with courage and confidence for myself and my kids.
