I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

I'm sorry I've been lax in bloggin lately, been sort of a difficult time here. I'm sure I'll go more into it later, but for now, I'll just say that Mark walked out on the boys and I Sunday morning. No one was home at the time but Charlie, and he left Charlie to deal with it all by himself. I came home to Charlie crying his heart out all alone. I had no idea he was leaving. He has moved in with a girlfriend, that is gay.
I will write more later, promise

My gosh...I don't even know what to say. I'm so sorry. So shocked. It's an awful situation all around, but shame on him especially for leaving your son to deal with it alone.

My prayers are with you and your family...I hope your husband comes to his senses...and doesn't throw his family away for what sounds an awful lot like a midlife crisis.

I'm so sorry, Kathi...

EVERYBODY ~ thank you so much for all your love, encouragement and prayers. I'm still at a loss of how to explain anything. The boys and I are good, honest. We're staying very close to each other and comforting one another. I've got the greatest kids. And, apparently, friends too. Thank you all.

Kathi, I am very sorry to hear and read about the abrupt walk out. We am praying for you and your family during this attack. But remember Jesus is standing right next to you and you are not alone. "Remember, I am with you always even until the end of time".

WOW...I've been so busy that blogging has been on the back burner for me, and my bro sent me an IM asking if I had heard about this.

I'm so sorry. My prayers are for you and your family (including Mark) I hope he realizes what he's throwing away.

Oh my Dear Kathi...I'm so very stunned at reading this sad news. I'm crying for you as I'm saddened in my heart that this has happened to you all. I'm praying for a very good outcome for you all. I wish I had some encouraging words for you and the boys, but I don't know what to say.

what an awful thing for him to do to the family. I hope your sons will be ok-this must be so traumatic for them and you. I will pray that god grants you strength and courage to deal with this situation.

OMG! Honey I am so sorry! I wish I would have read this sooner. ((hug)) You let me know if there is ANYTHING you need! OK? Holy crap, I’m so sorry.

abicali ~ thank you, and without God's love and strength, I'd be a basket case. But, I'm standing in faith. The boys have had a terrible but memorable lesson in honor, and I'm sure they'll remember it always.

kidd ~ I love how you express yourself, lol. You leave no doubt, huh? Thanks for the hug, need them all.

I'm very, very sorry for you and the boys. Mark-O was always one of my favorite people or I guess was, years & years ago. For some reason, it came into my head tonight to google you. I guess now I know why. I won't be reading your blog again, I feel as if I am trespassing. Hopefully, you still have my #. You have enough problems right now. If you ever use it, is up to you.
