    At a parish mission, I overheard the expression counting the cost. I have no idea why this was said or what it was in reference to, but it hit home. Below is what many of us do, say, and think. I am writing this for myself and anyone else this may hit...

    Not sure why, but i think what i typed below is so dark it is hard to read. I think if you highlight it as if you were going to copy and paste it, it will be easy to read. Sorry. One of the things about this site is i wish they would change the background...

    Things seem to have been getting a tiny bit better over the last few weeks. And the more I pray about how I gave an ultimatum, the more I feel led that I made a mistake. It was time to hold her accountable but not in that way. However, she said she would...

    Wanted to go to bad about 3 hours ago, but want to be really tired when I sleep so then it makes it easier to stay asleep and not think of who or where she is. A friend was texting and seemed really lonely. So I went over to his house to keep him company...

    All the while driving home, I prayed how do I handle this Lord, if she comes home late tonight? Do I say something to her about not coming home late? I get the thought just see what happens, and most likely I will be asleep and have no clue when she will...

    I appreciate everyone's input. And it has clarified a little more what has been in the back of my mind. I thought i owed a response to all your kindness you have shown. To ask her to change will be throwing down an ultimatum. And a line in the sand...
