I have a friend who is going through this right now as well, and I commend you for being as strong as you are. Let us know if you need anything. You will get through this, because you have to.

you are right, you are only responsible for your actions. and if someone is reacting negatively and you just be positive and hold on to that, then maybe just maybe that will change the other person....and if not, you did all you could. my sister went through a divorce with her 2 kids and step kids and it was horrible, but she just muddled through and after a year or two, they (her and the ex) were able to put aside the ugly and move on with the good for the sake of the children....hopefully that will happen for you! i pray that it does kate. your children are so deserving and so beautiful!!!!


great to hear from you kate. was worried about you. glad to see you blogging again. ciao!


So good to see you back Kate!!! Have been concerned about your absence and missed seeing your work & blog posts!! I hope life gets easier as the days progress. You're a strong woman Kate! I admire that!!

I agree with Tara 100%. Be true to who you are, so you can sleep at night and know that you haven't stooped to someone else's level. I had to learn this the hard way with the father of my oldest girl. In the end, things worked out as they should have. It just took perseverance and a little prayer :)

its so good to see you back. I have been worried about you. thinking about you a lot. hang in there girl. call if you need to...anytime.


Hey Kate ... I've been thinking about you and wondering how you are. Going through my divorce was the toughest emotional rollercoaster I've ever been on. I isolated myself, didn't want to talk with friends/family. I found a book "Growing through Divorce" that was helpful. One thing I discovered was that no one else will ever have my experience .. I own my own experience. I learned to not 'rent' space in my soul to the one that I found hurt me, caused me to feel emotional pain.

You are an incredible woman and know that 'this too shall pass', yet the emotions will come & go for years to come .. and we will recognize that and grow with them.

Yes, cherish those moments of peace and be able to recognize those moments. Those moments will continue to grow and begin to last longer and come closer.

Bless ....


Glad to see you back online... I'm sure I'm not the only one who has missed your blogs and art.

Oh, I'm so sorry you're going through this... I came looking for some inspiration which I always get from your projects and layouts and saw your post. Funny thing is that I can so relate to this post, I'm in the middle of getting a divorce and it kills me that we can't talk and compromise like grownups so that our daughter doesn't have to experience the hurt of her parents not getting along. Weird how much life changes when the one thing that has been constant in my life for the last 8 years is gone. What gets me through these days is remembering that "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's learning to dance in the rain."

Hope things get easier, Kate... I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Hugs, Sandra
