When I finally got around to telling my family that my husband and I had separated, my cousin sent me an email with a poem inside.
Sometimes we come to life’s crossroads
And we view what we think is the end.
But God has a much wider vision
And he knows that it’s only a bend-
The road will go on and get smoother
And after we’ve stopped for a rest,
The path that lies hidden beyond us
Is often the path that is best.
So rest and relax and grow stronger,
Let go and let God share your load
And have faith in a brighter tomorrow-
You’ve just come to a bend in the road.
-Helen Steiner Rice
And so it is this poem that has inspired me to create this blog, and navigate this journey on an unexpected path. I hope you’ll join me.
