Flames to dust ...

I have been contemplating this blog for a while now.  Because this is my blog and my platform for sharing my life and what I am going through, I have decided that tonight, I will share.  I have found much comfort in going back and seeing where I was, by reading old entries, and I want to record what my life is right now, so that in time to come, I can look back, and perhaps appreciate where I will be.

My husband of 13 years has decided that it's time to move on.  We are separated and he will be filing for divorce - fairly soon I would imagine.  It has not been an easy time.  I have had some really bad days, but I have also had good days.  I have made my peace with the decision and realise that it's time to move on.

I have to thank my daughter for her never ending  support and love, our families for loving us and understanding and my friends for their caring and concern.

This separation of two people is between us only.  I love my step-daughter and my in-laws unconditionally.

We have wonderful memories of good times.  But our lives must move forward in different directions.  I wish him happiness and hope he finds what he is looking for.  For me, I wish contentment and peace of mind.

Janet....divorce is a rough time, but if you let it drag you down, it will!! Think in a positive way and you will survive...and I'm sure all the stronger.

You have my support too.

I'm so sorry, I feel for you as I've been divorced 2x and now married again......I fear this happening to me again....u never know what happens in the future so can't take what you have NOW for granted.
Divorce like death is a reminder that I must work harder to cherish and grow what I have!

You in my thoughts Janet....stay as beautiful as you are!

I'm so sorry to hear. I really wish you all the best in this time. I can't even pretend to know what it feels like, but my brother is currently going through a divorce and he decided that its not going to affect his happiness or life and in fact that that mindset has led to him already meeting somebody who has put him in a happy place mentally.
