Following on the heels of Sara’s post discussing perspective, I’ve had my own perspective inducer today. My RL best friend today told me that her husband is moving out this afternoon at her request. It’s an extremely difficult situation and Brad and I care about them both deeply and my heart is breaking for her. Several of you have talked lately about friends going through difficult and painful divorces. It is hard to sit on the side lines and watch the lives of people you care about unravel. I wish that I could do something, but there is nothing to do but offer my time, my support, and my love. I would do almost anything for her.
So today I feel thankful that I have never had to wonder if my marriage would be there tomorrow. I have full confidence that it will be. Things can be and have been very hard, but it’s not been what my friend is going through. I really hope that they can work things out in time, but I’m not as hopeful for them this time around. Yep, this time around.
