I want to thank every one of you for writing such heartfelt responses to my post on Wednesday. I spent most of the last two days enveloped your words. I felt a little sick to my stomach Tuesday night as I set the post to publish. Not because I thought you would be anything but kind, I knew you wouldn’t, but because it made me feel vulnerable in a way no post ever has. That feeling slipped away and was replaced by so much love after just one comment.
My heart breaks for so many of you who are going through or have gone through similar experiences. I hope you know you are not alone and my prayers are truly with you. I hope the rest of the story can bring you hope as well. Thank you for all of your kindness. What a beautiful group of women.
Also, in clarification, the poem was written in regards to my previous marriage and not to my current husband. (see: love story) I am sorry for not making that more clear in the post.
