Pieces Of A Woman

Every step forward I take, every time I hit my knees, every triumph I experience, every tear I cry I find more and more of the beautiful woman I used to be.
I don't believe in divorce simply because a promise is a promise. Yes, I broke my promise and filed for divorce, that after 8 months has still not been finalized because of a custody fight.
I look back to the summer when I filed and remember hearing God say he'd use my ex as a stone to sharpen me against. God never lies.
The past few months through all the joy and pain I keep uncovering parts of myself that had been lost during the course of 6 1/2 years of marriage. Everyday I'm sharpened to be used in the good fight, each side of me being sharpened and shinning with brilliance.
The best part is that this woman has a strength and maturity that she was lacking before her impetuous promise to be the wife of the wrong man.
Never again will allow anything or anyone to dull who I am and who I'm going to be. World meet Me.... :)
