About Lessons Learned

After 23 years of marriage, I found myself a single mom of three boys.  Not really what I had hoped for. Oh yea, and I had to sell my share of a fitness studio that was my dream job and go back to working at a job I did when I was 20.  So now what?  Time will tell, but in the mean time I thought I would blog.

Just my little attempt to share some lessons learned and insights gained from life…..

And every tear that had to fall from my eyes,
Everyday I wondered how I’d get through the night,
Every change, life has thrown me,
I’m thankful, for every break in my heart,
I’m grateful, for every scar,
Some pages turned,
Some bridges burned,
But there were lessons learned.

    I found your recent article about having raised three adults on FB. After reading a few of your posts, I feel that we might have been separated at birth. I, too, have 3 boys. Twins who just turned 18 heading off to college this fall and a 15 year old who has been living with his father for the past 1.5 years bc I don’t let him get away with drinking and guess who does…. My alcoholic ex-husband of 18 years. It is exhausting trying to co-parent with a man who wants to try to make up for his transgressions by being a friend instead of a father. I would be happy to talk about our recoveries and experiences if you ever feel like it. Meanwhile, keep up the good work!
