I saw this on facebook the other day and had to save it. It made me giggle, but it also made me think about the past 13 years of my life. It says “Sorry for all my “activity” on Facebook, but since I have kids, this “social” network is really the only “social” time I get…SO DEAL WITH IT.” There were many times I felt this way over the past decade, but not only because I have kids, but because of everything that my life became when I got lost in motherhood. So I need to expand on this fun little Meme and add in Owain’s CHD, 5 years of surgeries & appointments, PTSD that comes with standing next to a child’s bed watching nurses fight for his life. I had to keep him away from germs, illness, and many times away from other kids. When he got sick, I was heading to the ER in the middle of the night knowing we would be admitted.

“On Faith and Marriage” is a 3 part series on how Faith and Marriage are braided together. —————————————————– Life is complicated. It doesn’t really need to be that way. My life is hard. It sucks. I hurt. My children hurt. They ask me constantly when their father is coming home. They are so mad. I am mad. Not so much mad the way I was mad two months ago, when after months of his strange behaivor, that he finally admitted his affair. My anger in the beginning was aimed at a man who I thought he was. Aimed at a man I know him to be. Not at the man he became when he decided to have an affair. The man my husband truly is would never hurt me and his family this way. How do I know this? Why do I believe it? I have Faith. Something I never really had before. Not just faith in something or faith in someone, but faith in God. Faith in One God. Faith in following and understanding the love and light of One God. Yes. For those who have known me for ages, take a second and let that sink in. For […]
