Happy Anniversary, K!

Has it been a year? Wow.

Just last week, my trusted friend and officemate, D, mentioned that he hasn't seen me cry in over a year now. "Diba, had you decided sooner, then baka two years ka nang di umiiyak..." Wow. One year. I couldn't even see this happening two years ago. Last year, when I decided that I had the final straw with R refusing to pay A's tuition, I thought I'd break with the first step - what with a new baby, and the tail end of postpartum blues. But I thought wrong. It was hard, yes, but the succeeding blows, plus a major breakout, made things way, way easier than I had expected.

I am not saying I am proud about what had happened. Having a broken family isn't something to be proud of. But it isn't something to be ashamed of either! Things happen for a reason. And this separation has made me stronger and wiser. I do not know where I am heading, but one thing's for sure: God holds our future! I can only pray for my kids and their future families - that the curse will not be passed on to them and future generations. God will make this right somehow, someday. How? I do not know. I just know He can make something good come out of all of this.

The support I got from family and friends during the past year has been immeasurable. For that, I am extremely grateful. I am most thankful for the peace God has given me. He never left me, I was always in His hands. His comfort overwhelmed me, so much so that I hardly felt alone.

God has been good! Life is great. So yea, Happy, Happy Anniversary to me. :)
