I’ve not written much lately, nor have I been able to catch up on as many blogs as I would have liked. Trying to prioritise ‘tasks’ I need to complete has been a task in itself! Unfortunately, my blog had to be pushed further down the list than originally planned. All posts this week had and have been scheduled to post from last the weekend. I love that feature on WordPress. It helps me out a lot.
Today is Good Friday in the UK – something I am used to ‘celebrating’ no matter where I am in the world. And this is something I will continue to do whether I decide to settle in the UK or in the US.
I am going to take further time out today to spend some quality time with my son Max. I will also be taking some time to reflect on how far I have come since leaving my abusive (ex) husband *Steve. My son’s quality of life has improved a lot since I walked away from Mr. Crazy. And so has mine. I don’t have to wonder where our next meal is coming from. I don’t have to wonder how much time I have left before Steve finally succeeds in taking my life. I don’t have to wonder if he is going to run off with our son again out of spite, then him showing up with a despicable grin on his face. I don’t have to wonder about Steve wanting me to move him to the UK, so he can claim benefits, not have to pay for medical, and just go Sightseeing, whilst I work my butt off to support his chosen lifestyle. I don’t have to wonder about any of his craziness (and then some) any more.
I have a lot to be grateful for, despite my experiences.
Thank you to all my family and friends all over the world, who have helped me in different ways, with each way being just as valuable as the other.
As for my WordPress family. Wow, what can I say about this wonderful community? A fantastic group who have really helped me along my healing path, and still continues to do so. You are all special to me, but there are a number of you who have really been there for me, and you know who you are.
You have all helped me to feel more confident again (not quite where I was, but I’m determined to get there again). I am able to make friends easily and quickly again. I look and feel better.
But one of the most important things I have been able to do is to laugh and make others laugh too. I never thought I’d be able to do that again, and boy does it feel good!
I hope you all have an amazing day that is filled with love and joy. ❤
