I'm really okay now. I really am blessed with a loving family and I ended up getting that job, and a friend invested in my business, and I got a house and my kids are now here with me! I just kept plodding along, taking it one day at a time and now here I am! I've also reconnected with friends and even made some new ones. Sometimes life might seem impossible, but as long as you keep drawing breath, you've got to do your best to LIVE, LOVE and BE HAPPY with what you have! That's how I feel anyhow.
Thanks for the favorite and thanks for your comments. I was together with my ex-husband for 22 years. He just recently left me for a woman who is ten years younger than me. Well, actually, he didn't leave me, he kicked me out. The house and cars etc. are all in his name. I had no money and no car, no home and the job I had just gone out and gotten was in a town an hour away from where I had lived. I also had no friends in the town where we were living because two years ago he convinced me to leave my teaching job and my family and friends to move from my home to the Asheville area of NC and then when "my" car broke down didn't get it repaired (the point being I had not a single friend to turn to, because I had spent the past two years completely isolated up there). Because of all this, I had to leave my children with my ex and the day after I left he had the new woman in his life and her kids up for dinner, the night after that they went out to a club and left my kids home with hers. Last Thursday my youngest son ( who is ll) was sick and stayed home and was stuck with no phone or electric because my ex didn't pay the bill. My one blessing in all of this has been my family. My father came and picked me up, took me to his home in New York, and gave me my childhood room back, my mother cooked with me and played Scrabble with me to distract me from my troubles. Both of them held me or left me alone when I cried (depending on what I needed. Now my uncle just bought me a car, and my cousin is thinking about investing on a wine and paint business I want to start. I also now have a teaching interview back down in Florida and my mom has volunteered to ride down there with me and my sister is going to let me stay with her until I get back on my feet. Others--good friends of mine have come to my aid now as well, and I have options for jobs and places to stay back in Florida and in Ohio and Tennessee. But it all started with my parents. And they are who they are because of their parents . . . and yes, now, even though I still don't have a job and I still miss my kids so much I ache inside, I am building myself up and things are going to be okay. I really believe they are going to be okay. Soon my kids with finish school for the year and I will have a nice little place in Florida and I will be back to showing them what family means and how to love each other and how to always be there for those they care about. And that is what you can do. Even if your family has not been there for you, you can change that cycle and be there for those you love and then, in turn, they will be there for you. I really think that is true. I hope you do too.
