As a former Mrs. USA 1995, I was a foster mother and a pageant celebrity trying to change the world. I ended up being the one that was changed! My marriage of 10 years came to an embarrassing end when me and my 1 year old son were left to figure out life on our own while my ex-DH (that's ex darn husband, NOT darling husband!) chose a life of drugs and alcohol. Then I had to figure out how to make life work as a single mom with a deadbeat ex causing us problems. I am now 37, remarried, and have seen God's goodness over the years. In fact, His goodness has always been there, life can just really suck sometimes, and I hope to leave a hope that God's goodness can always be found in the midst of bad. I joined cafemom because there are so many others who have been through hardships, and if we will listen to others and offer up our own advice, we can get through and triumph over what might derail us!
My marriage is going okay. Everday I am praying for restoration. In my heart I freel that God is working it out. I don't know what my husband is feelin gbut at least he is acting cordial to me and spendin gtime with the children.
