John & I, taken last month by my daughter Sam.
It's GREAT to read and hear about other wives as i'm so new to this! I lost so much in life, even my daughter's health to 5 diseases and my husband to his addiction(EX hubby) and then this man entered my life and i just "knew" from the moment i heard his voice, that this is my promised and 3 days later he gave me a ring! he's my soul mate and we got married 4 months later.
My home is in Michigan and his is in CA so we're trying to save money to move there, where i might be able to see him more often out of the home office where he drives a dedicated run for Walmart. As it is now i see him every 4-5 weeks for a few days...and it's near impossible. I feel as if i am a single mother who has an affair once a month!
life is short and i don't feel as if ANY of us have tomorrow, maybe from having to fight to keep my daughter alive and realize what's really important in life...but our faith is strong and we know the Lord has us right where we need to be.
my daughter is 16 and plans on going to photography school in CA so the move will help. She finished her 9th senior portrait commission and i am an artist, doing portraiture, commercial and corparate ID / Graphic design but work is slow here in Michigan.
it would be great to meet other wives who know what i'm going through...i still have not wrapped my head around the way we're living and i fear for days like if the car should break down or a special 'hubby need' as is struggle with my health AND since we've lost most of our friends here due to the divorce. in GOD'S GRACE...at the throne!
bless you all!
