I have been divorced for almost a year now, this wasn't something I expected to happen to my family, however it did. I have had to deal with saddness and anger towards my children's dad as he walked out on us. I have had to adjust to working outside the home as I was a stay at home mom for most of my children's lives, and my children have had to adjust to that as well. After my ex-husband left us, I found it very difficult to go to church. Everyone had good intentions and tried to offer encouragement to me that he would come back when I knew he wasn't going to.It has been a slow process to feel that I can return to church without feeling like something is missing, it is still hard to sit through the meetings with just myself and the children, especially when there is talks or lessons about marriage and our roles and wives and husbands mothers and fathers and how we need to be able to work together. I know that divorce isn't ideal and it is unfortant that it is a big part of our society these days, I don't agree with divorce I believe that we could have worked things out but unfortantly he didn't feel the same way. I am no longer angry with him or sad, from time to time my heart aches for my two older children as they love and miss their dad very much and the youngest doesn't even know him any more. All we can do is contuine to have Faith in our Heavenly Father that He will bring us through these hard times and provide the best for us. Day by day and step by step.
