When I was a little girl I imagined my knight in shining armor would whisk me off one day and we’d live happily ever after in a castle with incredible views–and someone to lend a hand with the laundry. There was nothing in my fantasy about hard times or heartache.
I guarantee you NOWHERE in my story did the prince and princess ever divorce.
But, my story wasn’t a magical fairy tale and my reality is to hold the title for “only divorce” on our family tree.

Twenty years later, I wish I knew then what I know now. Actually, I wish I knew then WHO I know now. It would have saved many broken hearts.

Most importantly, I’ve learned this:
Raising great kids is an honorable and life long endevour. A strong marriage makes all the difference in the world–BUT a family is only as strong as the marriage inside it.
