And Now We Transition
"Our mom and dad are getting a divorce," said my five-year-old daughter. She conveyed no emotion in that moment, it was a simple fact to her mind, one she had grown accustomed to, and she was stating it for whomever would listen.
It is a fact.
And there is emotion, for all four of us, and others.
But this is what's happening, friends. It's the big change I've hinted at.
This particular post is not right for the personal details, just the announcement that my husband and I are splitting up.
I've already moved out. I am starting new. I am at peace. I will tell you what I've been telling some of my closest family and friends, which is that I have been prayerful and mindful, and this is the path that has been laid for me.
It's the reason (really, a culmination with others) for my refocus. It's the reason I haven't been able to read and write in weeks. It's why I've withdrawn, been lacking when it comes to visiting you and reading your work and chatting through our social networking connections.
But I am in a good place now, as I transition. As we all transition.
I'd like to ask for your quiet respect and continued support.
Thanks to each of you for the place you fill in my life.
