Changes

The blog world is a strange thing. You get to be a voyeur into people’s lives in a way that most of us wouldn’t experience. I’ve really enjoyed that in the sense that I feel a part of friends lives that I’m not great at keeping in contact with. It sort of makes the world seem smaller. I can see my niece growing up and hear all of her fun stories even though she still lives on the other side of the country. The other side of the blog world is that you probably share things with some people who you wouldn’t otherwise tell. But there is a therapeuticness to blogging, to sharing your feelings, and so I guess in that sense it’s all for the best.

So what was all that blabbering about? Pat has moved out. We decided a couple of weeks ago, and tonight is going to be the first night he isn’t here. It’s really surreal and I don’t really want to delve into it, but just felt like I needed to be open about it as part of me dealing with it. Nothing is final, but for now we are going to try living apart. Right now we are just trying to focus on Will and making sure that he is ok through all of this. I guess that is really all I have to say about it for now. Last week at the Kenny concert he sung this song that I don’t think I had ever heard. Considering what’s going on it really touched me and hit home. And I hope that someday Will will realize that his parents were just trying to find happiness.

Kari,

I hope you are doing ok. We are going to be in Utah on the 15th, so I will give you a call sometime that week and we can go to lunch with Jenny and Shelli or something. Sorry things are rough right now. Hope your concert goes well next weekend!!

You know I'm "here" for you any time. Love you.

Ah, you're beginning a new journey; one that could take you and Will anywhere you want it to. As bad as my first marriage was, the divorce was even tougher, emotionally. But I got through those times, and you, seemingly stronger than I was, will get through this as well. If you can, see it, not for its sadness and negativity, but for a second chance at life. (People won't admit it, but many of them would KILL for a second chance at their lives.) I'll be of whatever help I can--even if you just want to vent. Know this; You're going to be fine.

Throughout all this, Miss Kari, try and remember that all things happen for a reason. And as cliche as it is, what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger. I'm always here for you.

You have been a great support to me. I want to be that for you. Now if we can only get our kids to play together nicely. ;)

I am hope that you are doing well. I want you to know that you are a great person and have always listened to me blabber on about stupid things and I hope you know I will listen.

I plan to come to the concert this weekend. I hope to see you.

I'm really sorry, Kari. I hope everything works out the way it's supposed to. You are a great person and I'm sure that no matter what, you will come out on top.

Thanks everyone. It is very comforting knowing what great friends I have.
