  1. Newbeginning2day – Until recently I could describe myself in a few simple words: devoted mother & wife. That is how I saw myself and I was perfectly content with what my consisted of. Then, one day my whole world changed and everything that I thought defined me and my life was ripped away. After 15 years of what seemed to be a happy marriage I found myself facing infidelity and eventually separation from my husband. I started this blog as a way to release the thoughts swirling in my head during this difficult transition in my life. I'm finding solace in the words shared by other people experiencing divorce, separation and infidelity and I hope that as my journey continues and I flourish in spite of the roadblocks I'm confronting now that someone starting this difficult path will find solace in my words.

    I am also hopeful to feel that way some time in the future. I’m 8 months in and waiting for that moment when it’s all a faint memory. Until then…I march on one day at a time! Kudos to you!

  2. Cheers! I agree, I feel like my “D-Day” was the beginning of something better. The end of “the horror” and the start of a new life, a new marriage, a new me. I am forever changed by that day. Stronger, wiser, vulnerable, honest and humbled.

  3. elizabeth2560 – ABOUT ALMOST SPRING Two and a half years ago my 37 year marriage ended suddenly through no choice of my own. I survived the heartache. I have taken control of my present. I am planning my own destiny, which is moving onwards to a life of purpose and meaning. This is my journey.

    We mark all other occasions, marriage (weddings), births (christenings), deaths (funerals), academic achievements (graduations), milestones (birthdays). We do not mark divorce so there is often no closure on the old life and celebration of the new. It is great that you are celebrating your new life.

  4. reocochran – I am experiencing crazy and hapless adventures in dating that may interest people over fifty. I am now 65 this year (2017) and enjoy taking photographs, incorporating stories or poetry on my blog. I have many old posts which are informative and written like essays. I have several love stories collected from family and friends. Even strangers spill their stories, since I am a grown version of the girl next door. I have been trying to live a healthy lifestyle with better food selections and active hiking and walking. I have written four children's books and illustrated them. They are not published but a battered women's shelter used one about neglect and abuse for their children's program and a 4H group used my "Kissing a Bunny is like saying a Prayer" as a coloring book. Please comment or respond so I may get a chance to know you. Sincerely, Robin
