I just had to steal this line from a fellow mom who is in the midst of a divorce herself. Her blog is http://peekinsidethecloud.blogspot.com/
One of the things she wrote was that she was "...running away from a marriage that just didn't fit toward a life that I have high hopes for."
I read this on her blog and it struck me. This is me. The running away part probably has a bad connotation, but I know that I - and I'm guessing she - did all I could plausibly do before the "D" word became part of the discussion.
But what gets me is the rest of that sentence. A marriage that just didn't fit. A life that I have high hopes for.
Don't we all deserve that - the chance to fulfill our lives as best we can?
