The second is emotional ... after 14 years, Hubs and I have really had to take a close look at our relationship and decide what we want, as it significantly changes your relationship when you live abroad, have two children and your spouse travels every week.
I mostly wanted to make a note of this time for my girls, because I think Chase will always remember when Mommy and Daddy were having a hard time. But I also wanted her to know that if you keep a clear head, and open your heart, that love is an amazing, powerful, healing thing. Love isn't a prince and princess riding off into a sunset, but that love can make "happily ever after" a possibility. I believe this with all my heart, and I hope that my girls will open their hearts to others without fear, for this brings grace, mercy, forgiveness and understanding - but most of all, even more love.
