In the interest of being open and honest, I need to share this.
This week has been really rough for our family. Two years ago, Sky and I went through something in our marriage, and I honestly didn't know how (or if) we'd make it through. This week, I found out we're going through them again now. And truthfully, I don't know how we'll do it all over.
Between all the rest of life right now- the news of a new baby and the struggling with all those first trimester symptoms, full time school, watching Millie, working, and caring for my home, I feel overwhelmed. I don't have the energy to handle this, physically or emotionally. I was just treading water with it all before- and this storm blew in out of nowhere. It feels about as good as a punch to the gut.
It's strange- I have a post saved in drafts, all about marriage. I was going to tell you how I have gotten dozens of emails behind the scenes of this blog. So many people are going through rough times in their relationships, and they've confided in me about it. It's very humbling, and it reminds me that no marriage will ever be perfect. Some of those marriages have lasted. Others have faded.
I just didn't think I'd be needing advice like them so soon. I thought we were strong again. And we aren't.
If you pray, I would appreciate your prayers. Thank you.
