At this point, we had been to two different counselors. 2,762 more words

Betrayal

Dark and Light…

The journey of my broken marriage has some real darkness, and difficult holidays aren’t necessarily real darkness (perspective). I realize as I write this post how many old pains, deep wounds there are to mend. 1,246 more words
