This past month has not been so peaceful. My hubby of 23 yrs is leaving "because both kids are 18 and able to take care of themselves". I am trying to find a job after been a stay-at-home mom all these years, but I have "no work experience" And to top all of that off I am having to find somewhere else to live.

I gave up many things so I could stay at home with my kids "I don't regret that". God blessed me with 2 wonderful children"sometimes" and it was a great honor to get to stay at home with them all these years. I gave up being able to have our own home even tough my hubby has made good money over these years, his "habits" have hurt us greatly. I had many people over the years ask why I still stayed with him. I don't believe in divorce.

I'm having a very hard time understanding how DH can even consider the possibility that just because the kids are older that they no longer need parents. My parents have always tried to help me even after I was married and had kids. I guess DH has forgotten just how many times too. I can't understand his  way of thinking. It is like the saying" throw them in the water they will either swim or drown". How do you raise a child and not want to help them just because they are now an "adult"?

Thanks for being able to release a bit of stress. I could go on for hours but being since I am have to use the computer at the library and type slow, I am almost out of time.  If you read this please pray for our family. I know prayer changes things.

I'm so sorry you're going through this. I've been through it and it will get better. You have to find the you that you lost and still be there for your kids. I will pray for you. Keep being strong and have faith.

Jun. 2, 2008 at 11:35 AM Father God, Thank you for the knowledge that nothing is too difficult for you to handle.  Lord, I lift my sister and her family up to you.  I ask, in the name of Jesus, that you would move on her husband's heart and change it.  Lord, would you open his eyes to see that his wife and his children still need him?  Would you give his wife the words and the actions to convey to him just how important this relationship is to her and to You?  Father, would you give her much wisdom and direction to know exactly what you would have her to do and say?  Father, I pray that these children not be left a legacy of divorce and above all else, I pray that Jesus would be glorified and lifted up.  May all praise be given unto Him, in whose name I pray, Amen.
