Handle with prayer

hi , it has been a while.

It's incredibly hard to write this post but just so you know where I am at.

Last week my husband and teenage son, suddenly and voluntarily left our home for an undetermined period whilst we sort out a few personal,grief and marriage issues.Plus my relationship with our teenager.

I've made mistakes.A lot.

It's been hard.

It is a long story.

It's too personal.

I am not sure how much I even really understand.

We are still talking and trying to work through this time as best we can.

Right now it's being compounded by 'outsiders' giving advice.

I feel very alone and isolated.

It is unbearable right now.

I just need time to focus on my little boys and resolving the difficulties in our marriage.It is all I can think about.

I trust my marriage is in the Hands of God and I will see a resolution in time.

Handle with prayer !

I just pray that This, too, will pass

Cathy said...

So sorry (and shocked) to read your post. I find it hard to post really personal stuff, so I think I understand how much courage it took to write it and 'put it out there'. I hope you feel you can talk to us out here in the blogosphere...we are here to listen without judgement. And we'll only offer advice if you ask for it :) I pray you can arrive at a resolution that is good for the whole family. xxx

mountainmama said...

Oh, Trish - I've been very slack about my blogging recently and then having the hardest time getting into my google reader the last few days, this came as a real shock for me. I'm so sorry.

Having been through my own family split this year, my heart goes out to you. I know the struggle it is to be true to yourself yet how vulnerable it feels to reveal such personal pain. You are a woman of integrity and great courage, and I know that you will work things out for the best of all concerned.

Love and hugs (((xxx)))

Best wishes Trish.

This too will indeed pass. A friend of mine says she loves it when I remind her that she won't live the rest of her life today. Neither will you. You clearly have many fiends here, but feel free to add me to the list and email if you need someone to "talk" to.

Sincerly,

Randall

baby~amore' said...

@ everyone &hearts - thank you for your kind words of support.

You have lifted me up I can't begin to thank you all. I am feeling a little more positive today.

The communication lines are open between us but I have no idea where it will take us.

Every day is still a struggle and I haven't spent a lot of time at home.I will hopefully be back soon to some sense of normality.

Paula said...

Dear Trish,
All parents make mistakes...especially with teens! ALL spouses make mistakes. Please do not feel alone at this time...for you are truly at one with all of humanity as we try endlessly to better ourselves. Give yourself a big hug...and I recommend writing (hand writing) a letter to your husband and or yourself...start sorting out your feelings and making some since of what is happening. I do believe everything is going to work out for you and I will keep you in my prayers. Much love sister.

Tracey said...
