So much has changed...

Six years ago today, I left my ex-husband. It was 2 days after our 17th wedding anniversary and it was the bravest thing I've ever done. It was a day I'll never forget, when he found out I had filed for a separation, he went nuts. I was scared, my kids were scared...
Flash forward 6 years:
Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the life I have now. I'm married to a wonderful man who loves me and my children. My children are safe and happy. I live in a beautiful home. I have a great job, I have great friends....and I have taken the steps to get my weight under control, permanently.
Wow! I can't believe how much things have changed and how much I've changed.
Have a great day!
Big Hugs!

Change, and when it is for the better, is the most wonderful thing. I think it's amazing that we can never really guess or even dream sometimes what life has in store for us!

I think you are beautiful, inside and out...and I believe that when your soul is in good shape...you attract good things.

Oh, Theresa! That made me cry! There are many things that we have in common. Including leaving a lousy marriage and finding the loves of our lives. I am so happy for you, and John is an awesome guy. Congrats on your 40lb weight loss thus far too!
