Lying on the floor cradling my pounding head in the crook of my arm, drawing the design of the rug with my finger while clutching tissues.  In the past twenty-four hours, the thing that I fear has come upon me.

Walking in he announces the promise he made before God, family and friends is a lie.  A woman from our Sunday School Class was now the love of his life.

I replay the scene over and over in what is left of the cerebral.  Emotions have been cried numb.  There is so much to do.  I need to find a job, find a lawyer, tell the children, tell their teachers; life-changing decisions need to be made, and rising from the floor in the darkness of morning is a greater task that I can accomplish.

Today I’m with my friend Laurie Wallin over at Living Power Life Coaching.  You can read the rest of this story by clicking here. I hope you will come by and introduce yourself.  We would love to hear from you!
