New start!

Compliments of the Season to all my family and blogging friends!

2013 has already been a year of great change for  us.  After much deliberation, Stacey and I have made the decision to move in with my brother Rob until I'm on my feet and then we will look for a new home and yet another fresh start.  It wasn't an easy decision to make, but I think it's best for us.

I have started counseling and am under my doctor's care.  It feels as though a tornado has ripped through my life, wreaking havoc as it's passed.  With my emotions, my stability, my home.  I am moving onward, and upward, with help.  Although the physical damage caused by this tornado is pretty simple to repair, I know the emotional upheaval will take time.  I have, at the advice of a friend, decided to set myself daily goals and "pat myself on the back" once achieved - one day at a time.

I will get there.  WE will get there.

I have been blessed with amazing support from people both near and far - Rob, Lesley, Stacey and Brad have been phenomenal in helping me pack up my precious belongings and move into a beautiful new home.  Close to work, and where peace reigns.  For these things I am eternally grateful.

There IS light at the end of the tunnel.  I am slowly learning to cope with my anger, and try and keep my dignity.  It's not always easy, but I am trying.

They say there is a reason for everything.  I guess the reason will become clear with time, but for now, I will move forward slowly.  No emotional decisions and no hurry.

Just one day at a time.

Though I've never been through it personally, My daughter has just gone through a divorce after 16 years of marriage (his decision) and I know she could relate to this post of yours. She said without her faith, school, job and the children she would never have made it last year. I'm happy for you that you have a support system, that you're doing counseling and that you have been able to move in to a peaceful home.
Thank you for your comments....we do actually have jam, it has more fruit pulp that jelly. Jelly is made from the juice extracted from the fruit by boiling and straining. Jam spreads more easily that jelly.
Blessings,
Mama Bear

The best thing to do is to look forward and not to dwell in the past. I hope this will be a wonderful year for you and great new things to experience

There is a light at the end of the tunnel .. and you will reach it. Glad to hear you are getting help - it was the best thing I did 2 years ago (circumstances completely different but I needed help then) ((hugs)) xxx
