Had a great morning too, but I could tell something was starting to bother her. She asked me to take one of the kids and go ahead of her to my parent's house where we celebrated Xmas with the extended family. Everything was ok there, but I could tell I wasn't going home tonight. We got the kids in her car and she was being very quiet. I asked her if she needed help with the kids tonight and she said no.(I am currently staying at my parents house)
I know it was hard for her to come today. i have been giving her lots of appreciation and love the last couple days. I am so thankful for what I have received from her lately. I am trying to use these things to stay positive and happy rather than be sad tonight.
There are more ups than downs lately, but the downs stink even more because I can see her pain so much better now that we are becoming so close.
At this moment I don't know the best way to support her. She probably wants to be left alone but I really feel I should somehow express my appreciation for her and all of this. I feel i cam trust my heart now that we are on this path. Maybe a call a little later or text.
Just thinking out loud I guess.
My BS said she just had to get out of there, she felt embarrassed and upset. She said she's gonna have to learn to deal with that kind of stuff.
I'm so lucky she loves me enough to work on this. Great chat, we both left feeling loved.
Congrats on the overnight stay. I'm glad you called and it went well. Hopefully you can keep helping her build trust in you, and you can move back in soon.
Just a couple days ago a very good friend of ours gave us their timeshare in FL for a week. We leave Saturday - driving from MD - with our kids. It will be nuts but we are both looking forward to this time as a family and together. Building new memories as my BS so eloquently says.
To say I am fortunate is an understatement.
I pray every day for the moment when I can just talk - JUST TALK - to my BS and your story helped get me through the day thinking maybe there is hope.
Thanks for sharing.
When you do get your chance with her, the feeling of joy and pride in yourself for sticking it out is indescribable.
Good luck, it's worth it. I promise you that.
I'm gonna get through this! Thank you.
