I began this blog The Hope Diaries on the 16th January 2014. That was the day that I committed to the word ‘Hope’ as my word for the year. I titled the first post ‘ beginnings and endings and keeping going’. It allowed for the possibility of a new relationship beginning, a marriage ending and me keeping going, or alternatively a new beginning for a marriage, an ending of the other relationship and still hopefully me keeping going. I didn’t know what choices anyone else was going to make, but I hadn’t closed down any possibilities.
Today I am going to simply refer you back to that post. It follows chronologically from what I wrote here yesterday. And being absolutely honest with you, writing this story is hard, painful exhausting work, and so today I am taking a pause. You can keep going with the story here. I will write again tomorrow…..
