The Divorce Trip, Did You Take One?

I get all types of divorce info from various sites.  When I came across this video from the Jimmy Kimmel Show, I had to share it with you. Let’s listen to this woman’s story and compare it to our own.

She was married for 48 hours and was two days into her honeymoon when she discovered her new husband was having an affair.  She said there were no red flags.  I liked what Jimmy had to say “better 48 hours than four years”.  I am so glad for this young woman that she learned the truth early on instead of decades later.

I was married 37 years and yes there were red flags, but I chose to ignore them.  Did I take a trip?  I did go on a trip shortly after my separation, but I did not title it My Divorce Trip.  I went to the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York with the Road Scholars.  It was a great experience.  Now that I think about it I need to take my official Divorce Trip.  I am going to start planning it:-)

How about you, did you go on a divorce trip? If so where did you go and how was it?  If you didn’t, plan one, you deserve it. Let me know where you decide to go.

Always remember God’s Promise.

“I will never leave you or forsake you”

Thank You God!

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
