hard things

I just found out today that a dear friend's husband wants to leave her. She is distraught of course and I don't think she suspected he felt that way. She knew they had problems and was feeling frustrated about their relationship but I don't think she realized he was ready to quit until he TEXTED her to say that he was done.

All I can think is "What a loser!!!!" They have been married for 7 years. Are professional ballroom dancers and teachers. From what I know, I think he is having an affair with a student. Her sister is my really good friend and she is the one we just went to see in Texas. I never suspected a thing either. It is all so bizarre.

He has been married once before and had no kids and they haven't been able to get pregnant in this marriage. I think that is a blessing now. How sad. It's all so very sad.

I can't quit thinking of her and wondering what I would do if it were me. How would I feel? Devastated, I think. I would feel like my world was over. How do people go on and get past such a rejection by someone they have loved for for so long or even longer?


Anyway, that is my news for today. I pray for all those people who are feeling what this friend is going through or who have gone through it already.

Love and support her...That is what you can do for her...

The "refiner's fire" is such a powerful thing...And despite the fact that she did not necessarily invite it, she will be a stronger, better person in the end...

Of this I have undoubted faith...
