The 2 Year and 8 Month Journey Ended Today!
My divorce has been long and pretty awful. Hateful words, uncontrollable anger, outrage, hurt and despicable behavior have brought us to here....September 30Th, 2009.
I was not a perfect wife. I will be the first to admit that. But I also was not treated well either. It is just an explanation, not an excuse. So in February of 2007 I walked out the door and didn't look back....not even a glance did I give him even when he asked me to come back in January of 2008.
Today though, after a battle I would never wish on anyone.....it is over :-) the dance between happy and hurt is gone. The house was sold today and closed without a hitch! Our divorce technically was final in June of 2009 but the financial part was still in the air. So now that I have my check from the selling of our house and the 401k and pension plan we split....we are no longer. I shed a tear for the hurt I caused and of course what I endured, but most of all that my children are actually OK. My oldest said he was glad it was official now because maybe the fighting would end. My youngest said "Yay Mom....now you both can be happy." How many parents can actually say that their kids are OK after a battle such as mine. Cameron and Colby have not come out untouched, but they are certainly in better shape than I ever expected.
God thank you for guiding me through this and allowing my children and I to grow stronger and better despite the reality of our lost family unit. Now we move upward and onward to make our own family and welcome the adventures ahead :-)
