Everything happens for a reason

Husband will be home in three days for our daughter’s graduation. I can’t wait to see him. It’s been another long six weeks. House is on the market but only three people have looked at it and no feedback yet. I think it’s a sign. No, I know it’s a sign. Husband is miserable up North. He says he feels he doesn’t fit up there anymore. His dad is struggling financially to pay my husband what we need to live and my husband doesn’t think it will get better. He got a call last week from a friend who owns a restaurant here. They are looking to expand and eventually franchise and wants to talk to my husband about being their district manager. Talk about timing! So he will be going to talk to him Saturday while he’s in town. He’s ready to come home, come home for good. Crazy thing is now both the girls are ready to move. Plans have changed, they just don’t know it yet. He’ll fly back Sunday, talk to his Dad, we’ll fly the 12 year old up there to visit and she’ll drive back with him. He tells me he hates being away from me, from us. He’s been having a lot of anxiety and almost broke down the other day. It’s become too much and he’s just feeling that moving would be a huge mistake. He feels he’s not doing the right thing for our family. So, here we stay. I’ll take the house off the market and life will go back to normal. So I think all things happen for a reason, even the affair. It may have almost destroyed us, but really it brought us to a better understanding of each other and what we have and the love we have for each other. He says I am his rock, as he is mine. Neither one of us could do this life without the other and we know that now. Up North is not where we are suppose to be at least for now. All I know right now is my husband is coming home to be back in these arms and I can’t wait!

  1. Thats the beauty of it isn’t it. Walking together. Today people tend to take family for granted, and would rather walk in parallel with one and another than with each other. If something happens you don’t like – leave. But I think it’s important that you walk WITH each other, you build your lives with each other in mind. Just as you are willing to follow him up North with your daughters and him willing to move back down south. Its about supporting each other through the thick and thin – but the most importantly – to be with each other.

    I’m happy things are gaining clarity for you. All the best to your family and your husband’s new career path!

    • Thank you, I’m grateful to be able to walk with him on this journey. He’s my best friend and I couldn’t imagine this life without him. We’ve gotten so far in our healing.
