This place in space is my thoughts on the many areas of my life as a follower of Christ, husband, father, son, brother, and friend to those around me. After many years of marriage, I found that I am not the best at verbal communication and this is a way for me to put thoughts down on what I have experienced. I hope you are blessed by my thoughts and please feel free to post a comment or send me an e-mail any time!

    I like your photo of you and your little girl.
    It makes me feel a little bit better because I see that you two have each other and it doesnt’ matter if there is an ex any more.
    I read the article on the last phase of the break up phases (3 total). I just realized, and that is what happens after all the pain and crying and wondering how you could even live after a break up, taking one day at a time… you just suddenly realize that the calm of the storm has been still for a while. That is when you realize that you did all the searching, all the reliving over and over in your head of your break up, and you are now exhausted and sick of it all. You realize you have reached the last phase of grief.
    That is where I am now. But, I ended up going back to my boyfriend who dumped me because I caught him cheating on me and he stayed with this girl for an extra 6 months when I was crying over it all. When their relationship ended, I took him back to fast…. I felt guilty for a while for ending their relationship and my boyfriends search for love from our ending relationship… but I didn’t like how he did it while he was still with me. So, I did what comes naturally and that is to replace what was lost – him. Now that I have him back I really do feel strong enough to move on. I just wonder now, should I? Because I allowed myself to become pregnant by him as a way of keeping him forever. I regret that decision since it was out of desperation and I wasn’t thinking straight. I even wonder if I will regret having a baby now that my own children are almost grown up. You see, my break up happened in a time when I was the most vulnerable and at the bottom of my rope. My children didn’t need me any more and then my boyfriend of 6 years didn’t want me any more. I had even lost my job. I was at wits end. I even wanted to die.
    But, I didn’t. So, here I am, returning to school with pell grants and financial aid, making something of my life.
    My realization now is that my future is in my own hands now. We make our life what we want it to be. And you can only begin to feel this way once you reach the final phase. That is a personal experience you must accept for yourself.
    I liked how this article had a separate link for the acceptance phase. Because it wasn’t until today that I looked at it and responded to it. During my break up, while I was going through the first 2 phases, I wanted nothing to do with the final phase as I couldn’t even imagine then as ever being able to accept the final phase because I was so torn up and going through the motions of the first 2 phases. It is definitely all a process that you must go through to reach the end.
    I wanted to terminate the pregnancy. But, I am going to keep it. Besides, your little girl is so cute. I know mine might look like that too. If I have a daughter… because my ex and I are both blonds. So, who knows. I do know that this time of year is a time to search for your spiritual awareness. I however have never felt so numb in my life as I do now.
    I will take a look more of your blog.
    Good luck.
