National Pursuit of Happyness Week

Some one sent me this lovely website to energize my has a 14 month calender to help when you don't know what to blog about. I have to admit that I am often blog entry challenged...I average about three - five posts a month. And this calender is supposed to help. The first entry for this week is that its National Pursuit of Happiness week. This couldn't have come at a better time. Its past time I pursued my happiness. I have been unhappy for some time in my life and its time I put me first. I know people always say that you have to put yourself first in order to be a good mom etc. But I have been so bad about following that advice.But no more.
And my first step is a doozy. I asked my husband for a divorce. I have been telling him that I am unhappy. I have tried to get him to go to counseling, to talk to our church minister...but of course he wouldnt. He doesn't see anything wrong..he gets all he wants out the marriage. He has someone to take care of him. He doesn't feel need to work, help out with kids, help out around house, help with our disabled sons therapy. He can watch cable tv and hang out with his buddies. Generally act like he is 19 years old. His reply when I told him I wanted a divorce was what you want. Please pray for me and my family. This is going to be a time of great upheaval.

Wow! I was NOT expecting that one. You're in my prayers. Your beautiful family (which feels more like my own) is in my prayers.

It's going to work out.
Keep the faith.

Thank you so much for the comment. I'm sorry to hear of you difficulty. I will be including your family in my prayers, and I know that true contentment is in His plans for your future.

I will keep you in my prayers. A little over 20 years ago, my ex (who sounds much like your hubby) asked for a divorce. Although I had 2 healthy kids, I was the sick one and yet left with almost their total care. Shortly after it was all over I told him that he had done me the biggest favor that he could have ever done.
Take care of yourself. We have never met yet we are sisters. Do the things that you love and which make you feel good about yourself. Stick with people who do the same. Life is too short to keep the negative around. I will say my prayer for you and light a candle to keep that prayer going.
God bless.
