I'm thankful
1) my husband is finally owning his behavior, is being honest, is not blaming our marriage, is working on himself & is in IC.
2) our health
3) for "us", so grateful for us. I love my husband so much.

Strength comes from within. You can't get it from someone or go somewhere to get it. It is already here, waiting to be used when you need it most. Believe in yourself.

I am thankful for new roads, and the chance to walk down one.

No life should be passively relinquished due to the toxicity of others and taking steps to protect yourself may very well be the most important steps you will ever take.

In addition to the many wonderful things you have all mentioned, I am thankful for the chance to grow emotionally in ways I never thought I would need to; to plumb the depths of my own character and learn who I really am; and to expect the same (and get it) from my life-partner.

I'm thankful for my two beautiful little boys.

I'm thankful for SI - without it I would be in the midst of D, not understanding that WH was in a fog on D-day and basically certifiably nuts - or else I'd be in a miserable marriage having rugswept and not understood what it takes for true R.

I'm thankful that WH finally seems to have his whole heart in R, doing everything possible, and no longer running from reality and leaving me to hurt alone.

I'm thankful that my whole family will be together this holiday season, with no ugly secrets. It will be a painful season for sure (also A season) but we will have each other, which is nothing short of a miracle in light of everything that has happened.

I'm thankful for chocolate.


D-day #1 - 1/23/13
false R, then...
