Gratitude...Relief... Hope...

I've been thinking about "Sarah" a lot....Her name came up at a family gathering recently and I felt that twinge of sadness.

But I also felt a lot of relief. The divorce was final earlier in the spring, she got the house and splits custody. The kids are adjusting to the new "normal". 

Sarah's experience and watching (albeit from a distance) changed my life, maybe even (in some ways, not to sound dramatic) saved mine.

Because of her I did things this year, that I never ever would have. I took some (GIANT) steps of faith. And in so doing, have lead to doors in my family being opened.

Leaving church, stepping away, taking a break...Best move I ever made.

It was scary. It was a little embarrassing...But it was what I had to do and I'm so proud of myself.

I have mentioned in other posts that Hubs and I had made the decision to leave church for a time. It has been amazing. It has been such a blessing to pursue relationship, not religion.

I wish I could thank Sarah, maybe some day I will get to. I need to get Friendly down to bed....
