One thing I never worried about in life- my marriage. My husband has always been a man of his word, and his first priority was our family. I trusted him in all things. We believed marriage was forever. Until he didn’t.
Together, we lived and loved this crazy, wonderful life we created. Best friends since 17 years old, we were amazing partners at this thing called life. Sure life was rarely easy and always busy- but no matter what, it was us against the world. We loved, we laughed, we dreamed…and then one day it was just gone.
It’s so crazy, even 6 weeks later I still can’t wrap my head around it. I never blog about marriage, not because I had a bad or difficult marriage, but because I didn’t think it was fair for me to give advice. Our marriage was always so effortless. We were the couple everyone else wanted to be- in love, always putting the other first, and happy just to be together.
And suddenly he threw it all away.
So now, heart-broken, I keep moving forward, because I have 6 beautiful children and I have no other choice. I’m turning my energy toward raising my children. To rebuilding their trust in people and promises, so one day they can again believe that not everyone they love will leave them.
So now, this blog becomes a place to talk not only about the blessings (and chaos) of raising a big family, but also about surviving this and learning how to be a single mom.
