How to start this post was a challenge, but as I was married for twenty years , I hope not to do any other kind of relationship short if I start this post with: “When a marriage of twenty years end”, there is the question:”How to continue or is it How to start over”.
Well after the drama of breaking up , there comes the moment of building up ! The question is are we rebuilding a House? or are we Building a new House? to continue with this analogy we can say the old house seemed not adequate for all residents, does that mean that the old house should be torn down completely or rebuild? Fact is that the building of a house is a matter of all residents , so for now my daughters and I are the residents and we are partly rebuilding the house to our liking! Our plans are to have more talking to each other , more expressing our love for each other daily , more time for each other and more respect for each other!
Respect is an aspect that often is confused with authority. Yes as a parent you are ultimately responsible for your underage children but that does not give you the authority to speak and decide for them without consulting them.
Love is a love that is not selfish, not jealous, always forgiving and giving
So how now further only God Knows, I pray he guides us in his plans, we will keep inviting him in ours!
