Hey friends. (:

I can't believe it's been an entire year since I've blogged. I'm not feeling particularly chatty right this moment, but I wanted to share a very significant change in my life with the friends who have been so integral in the path that has led to this step I'm on.

I have decided and am in the middle of divorcing my husband of nearly 26 years. It's been a gut-wrenching, scary, L-O-N-G process of enormous proportions in my heart and soul..not taken lightly.

Every day is wild card right now, but in the midst of it, I am eating healthier, less stressed, and taking better care of myself than I ever have and it is as natural as breathing. That in itself is one indication to me that I am making steps in the right direction for ME. I have peace.

I have been actively ditching baggage, traveling lightly, and becoming comfortable in my own skin.

I am considering coming back aboard SP because I am in a serious life change right now, and the support system I've always very carefully managed is not my support system of choice anymore. It's time to adopt a new method of operation for the new chapters in my life that lie ahead.

I am currently seeking a job in the WNY area. I have an interview on Monday & civil service testing tomorrow. Every day is an adventure, and I am living it, feeling it & LOVING it ALL.

I'll be back.

    Thank you, everyone, for the love! One day at a time.... Still married..still working on it & hanging on. It's been hard..not fun..not the way I would picture my life, but I'm hoping the work I'm doing now will build the foundation for new growth and the future. Still not sure if hubby and I will make it, but I am trying to make good choices each day..that;s all I know to do. I'm working full time now and liking it a lot. I got the job for the state, just have to follow through, and I'll begin in April working with the physically/mentally handicapped. There are days when I feel so alone, and unsure that I'm ever going to feel "happy" again, but then I am reminded of all the beautiful people here, and that have crossed my path at the perfect time. I gives me peace. Love to you all!!

    Susie, I haven't been here in such a long time, I had no idea this was happening in your life. I never picked up on it at all on FB. I just want to tell you I'm very sorry this has happened. I hope that things are going smoothly, hope you've found the job you were looking for, and hope that your life is happier and peaceful, whatever you needed it to be, I hope you found. You are a sweetheart, I always wish you the best!!

    Sending hugs and positive vibes to you while you are on this journey. Been there and done that so I have an idea of the emotional roller coaster you are on. I've been back and forth on Spark, I'm back again, and if you need a shoulder please give a holler. Proud of you for taking care of YOU.

    Love, Sharon

    emoticon emoticon You have plenty of support here should you decide to come back (even though several, like you, have left) there are several of us still here. I was happily surprised to see your blog when i checked my e-mail a few minutes ago!

    I am so glad you are taking care of yourself and moving forward. I have no idea just how hard what you are going through is for you, but my imagination tells me it's not something to be jealous of...

    ALWAYS here for you, you know how to reach me should you need/want to. Hugs.

    Love you lots,
