The sun brings a new day as one ends

I’ve made a little change on my header as you may have noted. It’s a picture that I took while riding in a boat at Disney World in Florida.

I chose this one because it’s not only pretty to look at but it also shows a phase in my life. The vacation was without the man that I was married to for 20 years. He wasn’t invited to join us and I made that very clear. I remember sitting on that boat watching the sun give way to night thinking that it was an ending of a life I know.

I haven’t gone into the divorce without knowing that we will be pain. I was afraid of what it would do to my children. I was afraid of what it would do financially. I was afraid to stay with this man.

I also know that with each sunset is a sunrise and I’m ready to see the beginning of a new day.

God paints the sky and I am blessed

Oh, wow! Milly that's an awesome picture. That sight was a gift from God for sure! I hope it continues to encourage you. I can't pretend to understand your divorce - or agree or disagree with you about it even if I were privy to all the details - but I can encourage you to face each day as it comes. You go, girl. :)

Milly, thank you for opening up and sharing your trials with us. We are truly here for you. It would scare me if you stopped.
We care.
Love the pic, too. And you.

Beautiful photo. I can't imagine what it would be like to go through what you are going through. You seem so brave, but I know it hurts...

Reading the comments from Missy, Karen and Barbara really blessed me. They, with you Milly, have been such a blessing to my heart. You each share in such beautifully vulnerable ways.

Thanks Milly for sharing a bit of your story. Your courageous heart comes through with each sentence.. and the picture is glorious.. just like you!

Blessings, Bob
