A favor to ask…

Posted on | April 24, 2011 | 8 Comments

I appreciate the show of support.
Honestly, I truly do.  And reading the comments that come in make me feel less alone, and stronger, and able to do this. So you can understand that I do not want to turn off comments.

That being said, my husband is the father of my child.  He has his faults and we, sadly, are not meant to live the rest of our lives together.  But I loved him once.  He is not a terrible person.  He is not the right person for me, but that does not make him a horrible person who should have horrible things happen to him.

So if you want to tell me how you’re thinking of me and wishing me the best, thank you. From the bottom of my heart.  But I ask that you not use the comments to berate the father of my son.  I ask that you respect the fact that the internet is long-lasting and I would never want J to read horrible things about his father.

Thank you for being there for me. It means more than I could ever express.  But if you could, try to help me stand… try to hold me up and give me strength… without tearing him down.

Lots of love,

Law Momma

    I wish there were more moms out there like you. In the face of adversity, you stand tall and take the higher road. A mom and woman that any son would be proud of.

    You are a strong amazing woman. And you deserve a strong amazing man. I’m sorry J’s dad isn’t that man for you now. J will be because he has you teaching him. Keep doing good mama!

    Your son will be so proud of you. I think everyone can learn how to deal with this type of situation-one in which there are no real winners, one in which there is only pain and frustration–and come out a better person. I hate to say it but even your son’s father is lucky to have you. You are making this the best possible transition for everyone-which can only benefit your and your son. HUGS

    I think you’re awesome. Honoring the role your soon to be ex-husband played in you and J’s life, honoring marriage, and also maintaining integrity. I applaud you and your refusal to confess your husband’s sins to us. You’re one classy lady. Such the debutante… Ha!

    This post here is just part of what makes you totally awesome. J is part you and part his dad, and the fact that you recognize that is terrific. Hang in there ((((Hugs)))
