thank you and better and where are you

Thank you all so much for your sweet comments. I guess that is what I was looking for. To know that others have been here and that it is surmountable. Things are better (recovering?) at home. S has taken responsibility, in a way she never has before. And more importantly, she's taken some action to learn and grow from her mistakes. I'm feeling raw and bruised and a little skittish. But also thankful and even somewhat hopeful. We've sort of mashed together a new perspective - that we treat each other and our relationship as precious and that this is a journey and as long as we are always committed to working hard at understanding and meeting each other's needs, we'll be OK. I guess that sounds a little on the hokey side, now that I write it down. But I think it is going to work for us.


Jenny. Where are you? I so appreciate all the comments you leave me, but I can't figure out how to get to your blog. Every time I click on your pic or your comments, there's no link. I'd love to follow along...help?


  1. Hmmm...am I the Jenny in question? My blog isn't linked to my profile so I'll assume it is. If so - you've been around before but I'm here: http://try-try-again1.blogspot.com/

    Glad to hear things are looking up and that S is playing nicely. I don't think your perspective is hokey at all. What you have is precious and worth treating gently. Meshing two individual lives together isn't easy and the bindings can be fragile. I am hopeful for you as well.

  2. Thanks for the first comment. :)

    Glad to hear things are looking up. It will work, as long as you both keep working on making it work. That's about all I've learned about relationships. :)
