1. I need to suck it up and stop whining. Being a mom is hard for everyone and at different times. Every mom can relate and can probably host their own pity party. So I need to abandon my party and start encouraging others.
2. I re-read what I wrote and realize it could be construed as me describing my husband as being absent and non-helpful, which couldn't be farther from the truth. The post was about my wrong reaction to a innocent situation; it wasn't meant to hint that I was whining about my wonderful husband.
3. I am stronger than I think.
4. Divorce isn't an option for us. Period. No, seriously, it isn't. Part of the covenant Mike and I agreed to on our wedding day was that we wouldn't even say the word - even jokingly - in our home. So even though things may seem heavy and dark now, we both know this will not end our marriage because we won't allow it.
That being said, we're still talking about making some major changes. We've even daydreamed about selling our home in Richmond, Mike quitting his job, and taking 3 months or so to focus on starting a non-profit (something we've discussed for years), and spending concentrated time together as a couple and as a family. Could be that these dark days are meant to be a catalyst to catapult
us down the path God has for us!
