Regarding Lint & Change


“Daddy, come here please. I have something for you”, Peanut said.

“What do you have for me?” I asked.

“Hold out you hand.”

I obliged.

As she placed a tiny ball of lint into my hand she replied, “A fuzzy from my butt”.

Thanks, kid.

Tomorrow Mrs. Joe & I have our first appointment with a marriage therapist. I am anxious to get things out in the open with someone who, I hope, can make sense of everything that has happened.

I want to say thanks for everybody who has given me encouragement through all of this. I have wavered back and forth on what to do and you all have stuck by me. I am assuming the next few weeks will help things become clearer. But then again, I have thought things were clear before only to see it blur.

Here’s to the next chapter. I hope to write something positive for a change.

Can't imagine much else you'll do in life that will be harder than this. Good for you for being willing to shine the light in all the dark places; they are less frightening and powerful when illuminated. It's hard to take a look at oneself, one's marriage...do much luck and courage to you in the days ahead as you weigh out all the cons and pros.

Don't stop yourself from enjoying all the good parts of "making up".

Cheers.

Aw, fuzzy butt lint. It doesn't get much better than that.

Good luck with the marriage therapist - good for you for tackling the bull by the horns.

I'm so hoping this all works out for you. But you are already a lucky man - what with the butt lint and all.

wow. I found you at Debbie's, and just caught up on the last five or six posts.

My advice, worth zero, may be different. I hope you will pay close attention to what you need in a relationship, what has happened and not feel even a smidgen guilty if you decide not to reconcile after all the counseling is said and done. If one of my grown children cheated on the mother or father of their own child, I would feel remiss in advising my DIL or SIL to work it out...But, I do know it can and has been done.

Affairs are FAIR deal breakers.

Well, not fair really. But it is fair to move on with your life and choose to be cherished in a marriage.

I've been a neglectful reader for almost a month again, but I just caught up. Good luck with everything ahead. Whatever the outcome, I'm sure you'll be better for it.

Although challenging, it's not impossible to patch things up. Hope your's is one of the ones that can weather it. If not, you know you tried your best and were open to exploring that possiblity. Good luck to you.
