And the Word of the Day Is:

B is for broken hearts and spirits
A is for asking God to get us through this trial
N is for not letting this situation get between our marriage or family
K is for knowing we did our best, even if it wasn't enough
R is for (dare I say it?) relief
U is for understanding the court system better than we ever wanted to
P is for pride, severely wounded as it is
T is for tallying up the value of everything we own
C is for constant collection calls, whick will thankfully be stopping soon
Y is for yanking ourselves up by the shoestrings and limping towards the future

Today was the day. Signing all the paperwork. Feeling ambivalent, elated, and deeply ashamed all at once. One door slamming shut, another peeking open.

This life is quite the journey.


  1. HE will not leave you, even down this road. Praying for you as you go through this.

  2. Can't imagine how hard that was(is). I'm so sorry that this is piled on to an already challenging (to say the least) year.

    Praying for you my friend.


  3. You'll make it through this, just keep leaning on God, He'll guide you through.


  4. Hang in there, friend. You'll get through it and good things are coming your way.
