STOP and Watch This With Your Children NOW. . .

 

I came across this video on Facebook yesterday and happened to watch it.  It is only a few minutes long but something you should watch alone first, and then watch with your children.  I was home with my 8-year-old son and his friend and we watched this together.  We then discussed bullying.  Yes, they’re only 8, but I felt as though they are old enough to understand, and old enough to experience the “shock factor”.

To My Homewrecker, My Ex-Husband

 

To my home wrecker , my ex-husband. They say people cheat because they are missing something at home, physical affection , sexual gratification , mental connection / understanding , well what was your excuse? Because even though we had more than 1 handful of children to raise ( your’s from you previous relationship’s and mine from my previous relationship and our’s ) I always found time to be the loving supportive wife and mother to you all , I was exhausted most nights after you would go to work at midday and not come home until your shift ended around 11pm.

Weekdays were filled with our children coming home from school and the normal routines home work , afternoon tea , play time , bath time , dinner time , bed time , then making sure you ate when you came home from work and when you were in the mood satisfying you in bed before sleep. We Continue reading “To My Homewrecker, My Ex-Husband”

My Father’s Betrayal

 

The following was copied from my daughters post today. It broke my heart to read. How can the man who was supposed to love and protect her continue to hurt her every chance he gets.

Daughters Facebook Post

NEED EVERY PRAYER OUT THERE POSSIBLE PLEASE!!!! I am not a person that posts personal matters on Facebook, only thing I share a lot is about stress in school or my happy relationship. But what a lot of people don’t know is my home life. Everyone on here probably thinks I am privileged, spoiled, or rich. In reality I am not. During High school I was honored for my father to switch me his GI Bill benefits meaning I had practically an 80% full ride to further my education. By having these benefits I chose one of the best colleges ever in Texas, not a public institute but a Private institute. Since 80% is covered why not go big!

Once High School graduation night came around my father had driven in from his stationed area and attended my graduation. That night as we had went home to celebrate Continue reading “My Father’s Betrayal”

I Deserve Better

 

I recently shared a letter to my husband. After some contemplation, I thought perhaps my story could help others in a similar situation, so her it goes.

I was 18 years old when I joined the Army. No one would have guessed that I would excel in the military, but I absolutely loved it. When I left for basic training, I had been seeing a sweet guy who didn’t understand the rigors of boot camp. When I couldn’t call him everyday, he thought that meant I no longer cared. He moved on and met someone else. While at the time, this didn’t actually seem to be too big of a deal, not long after that he was killed in a car accident in which he had been drinking and driving. When we were together, I wouldn’t allow him to drink and drive and I spent a lot of time later on wondering what might have been.

I was in my fourth year in the Army when I met the man I would later marry. He was cool, confident and honestly a challenge. I met him at an Army training event. He was a soldier too and at that point in my life, I had found that men who didn’t know that lifestyle, didn’t take kindly to it. Continue reading “I Deserve Better”

On April 1, 2015 I received the most heartbreaking life altering news you possibly could in a marriage. My husband hand been cheating on me with the w***e he rented his trailer to. I have so many things to say to her (I speak my mind to him daily about it) So here’s my letter to my HW.
Dear HW,

A lot of people say you can’t wreck a home if the home is already wrecked. This is untrue. Granted, he and I had our ups and downs, but who doesn’t. When he decided to rent the trailer to you, I said Continue reading

Kevin Frazier Ruined Christmas For So Many Kids

 

ap-thanksgiving-day-parade-3_4

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Today is the day, you eat Turkey, watch Football and spend time with family and friends.  If your family is like mine, you get up in the morning and tune in to watch the Thanksgiving Parade.  It has been a tradition in this house for years.  Today we were just being lazy so we had to hurry and get ready and dressed. The parade wasn’t over, so my son who just turned 8 had to get into the shower.  Because we didn’t get to see Santa yet, I paused the parade and once he was dressed he came down to watch with me.  And then it happened, Kevin Frazier live on TV talked about how the parents move the elf on the shelf.  My mouth dropped.  What an idiot, how could he possibly be so stupid?  My son was on the floor playing with his toys and just looked up to the TV and looked at me. I just continued to look at my computer and said Continue reading “Kevin Frazier Ruined Christmas For So Many Kids”

You Will Never Trust Him Again

 

So your husband cheated on you and you have made the decision to save your marriage.  Perhaps it is because you love him so much.  Or maybe you are comfortable in your marriage, have children.  Whatever the reason is, you have decided to make it work, to forgive him.  To pick up the pieces of your life and try to move forward.

I am not here to tell you to leave your cheating husband, nor am I here to tell you it is not possible to move forward. The truth is, you can move forward.  You may even end up living a relatively happy life, but, and here is the but.  You will NEVER be able to trust him again.  Sure you will talk to others and they will say that trust has to be earned and eventually you will be able to trust again. That sounds good Continue reading “You Will Never Trust Him Again”

Thank You

 

To my Ex-husband:

It’s been almost four years since you asked me for a divorce. It also happened to be our anniversary, which you forgot. I shouldn’t really have been surprised since two days prior my best friend had to remind you that it was my birthday.You left me for a younger, prettier woman. I use the term woman loosely as in reality she was a girl. Eight years my junior and to borrow the term, a “cool girl.” I was so stupid that it was only after the divorce was final that I found out about her. Without sounding clichéd, but did you really have to pick her; my friend? A girl I mentored through her career and even allowed to live with us when she had nowhere else to turn? Funny how she didn’t last long. Did you really think a relationship based on deceit would? Continue reading “Thank You”

I Am NOT The “Crazy Ex-Wife”

 

Have you ever wonder why some ex’s feel the need to treat you and your kids like you’re just sucking every penny they earn? Do they know how much it cost to raise a child? Not just one but two. Why is it that every year single moms get stripped down and get called money grabbing “crazy ex-wife”? When all you’re trying to do is not be in poverty because someone wasn’t happy. There are some people in this world who just want to be able to move past things but then constantly get hit over and over because some one doesn’t want to do their job as a parent. Being a single mom for almost 3 years and at this point I only am fighting for my kids and I to stay afloat. I am not asking to be rich while the other suffers. I am not trying to be that “crazy ex-wife” who just takes and takes and takes. I just want to be able to move past what has happened and be able to enjoy life without having to worry if a kid gets sick then I lose money on my next paycheck to support my kids.
