As this blog has evolved, so have we. Karen and I find ourselves in totally different places than we were years ago when we began with that very first step. I don’t believe divorce is something anyone totally “gets over”, or “recovers from”, or “heals from”. I believe the damage done is now part of who we have become. For better or worse, it was the worst, at least in our minds.
We find ourselves growing and learning each and every day. We also find that we still have the heart to be there for others as they try to find their way. As Karen and I ran into a writing block wall of sorts, we questioned whether to keep the blog going or shut it down. At just that moment we were referred to someone struggling, or we were asked to speak, or we received a note of thank you from someone reading one of our posts from months or years before. You see there will always be someone out there just like us, searching for answers, searching for help, searching for someone to tell them they will survive and probably most importantly thrive. As we wrestled with this decision, we each independently experienced some things in our own lives that either made us reflect on past writings or get out the keyboard and start writing again.
We believe God has nudged us both to keep plugging along and that is what we fully intend to do! We have updated the website and will not only repost past stories, but new ones as well. We know that even one life touched is enough.
So together lets keep taking one step at a time, and With Every Step we will together discover who we are meant to be!
Donna and Karen
