Update

Well, after several months of struggling, I've decided that I should post an update. I apologize for leaving all of you hanging for quite a while.

Shortly after my last post, my husband informed me unexpectedly that he did not want to be married anymore and asked me to move out of our home. Obviously, I was crushed and had not seen anything like this coming. He had been struggling with multiple personal issues for quite a while.

I am happy to say, that through much prayer and lots of hard decisions, we have decided to continue to work on our marriage. The girls and I have been living in town for the past 3 months while my husband has made some tough decisions in his own life to decide what is really important. I wish that I could say that I have not been hurt through all of this and that I haven't hurt him, but we've both made mistakes, but in the long run, we both love each other and our family.

I don't think that repairing our marriage will be easy, but I'm confident that if we both have the same goal, we will make it through this. I have told so many friends that I hope I can look back in 5 years and say we had a really rough 6 months, but our marriage made it through and now we are stronger then ever.

Obviously, I have a lot of friends and family who read this, so I will not go in to details everything that has happened because this blog is written by me and by my perspective. It wouldn't be fair to my husband to air things out through my view point.

I haven't been able to post because I have not had a lot of joy and wasn't sure where we would end up. Now I'm hopeful that we will make it through. Please pray for us that we make the right choices to keep our family together and make our marriage stronger then ever.

I miss all of you!!

I enjoyed your blog but wasn't sure what happened to you. I hope you guys can work everything out. Marriage is the hardest thing I have ever done but also the most rewarding. I have found I have to work on it everyday and that it can never be neglected. Hope you can stay together and be happier than ever!

I do hope you both can work things out. I couldn't imagine having to raise my kids without my husband here.

I'm so sorry that you have been through such tough times lately. I just stopped by here a couple days ago, wondering if my reader wasn't picking up your posts or something. You and your family will be in my prayers.

Sorry to hear about your rough patch. You know, I am not married but I tell ya, I hear from everyone I know that it is reallly hard work. That is why I am being so selective! ;) It's not something to take lightly. And sometimes it's up and down and back and forth, a bit like a wild rollercoaster... but that doesn't mean it has to end....it's just part of the journey. I am glad to hear you are working on it. Best wishes and we're all praying for you guys to have a happy ending!

I was looking for ranching family blogs and ran in to yours. I am form a ranching family my self. And I know life is hard out here at times. And have been married now for 18 years. I have seperated form my wife several times always thinking I could do better. But I have come to find out that there is no better girl on this earth than her for me! She is my best friend of all time. I really do hope you the best for your family. I hope that your husband can find out the same thing I have about who he is with. And if he's smart he will!
