Something Missing

You may or may not have noticed a certain silence from me.  This is officially my second blog of the year and we're just a few days away from next year.  If you did notice and have reached out to me, thank you.  I can't tell you how much your care and concern means to me.  If you didn't notice, no big.  I get it, really...we're all busy.  

And even on my Facebook page, you may have noticed something strange about my posts and pictures.  Sure, I'm keeping you updated about the kids, work, my Jamberry business, selfies galore and general funnies but there is distinctly something missing...

If you guessed that it's been my husband, Don, that's been missing, you're right.  That's because I moved out in August.  The details of our separation are just that - ours.  Here's a short list of suggested do's and don't's for you.

Don't alienate - we need you.
Don't assume - ask.  Seriously.
Don't judge - until you've walked a mile...

Do blame us both
Do forgive us both
Do love us both
Do support us both
Do pray for us both

I ask for you to do these things for both of us because no part of marriage, including separation and/or divorce is a one sided thing.  

Above all though, please join us in praying for our children as we navigate this separation as Christ like as possible.  

To try to end on a positive note, here are some of my favorite snaps of the kids over the past year for you to enjoy:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Love always,

PS - I lost sight of weight loss and gained since August.  I'm back on track and maintaining a total loss of 167 pounds since my surgery in June of 2013.
