    My memory seems to be fading the last few years. Hopefully not a sign of Alzheimer's. But if it is, I know God will be with me. I am sure I am just showing my age. LOL. But if I remember, many of you had suggested I ask her out or not to be afraid...

    I woke up, and prayed on what to say to her or how to go about all this. no clear answers at all, on if I am approaching this right or wrong, or what to do or say next. I went to our room, a sat next to her while she was sleeping, rubbed her arm, and...

    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...

    She came home the last two nights after 3am. Usually I never hear her come in. The first night I stayed up to pray if it was time again to admonish the behavior. I felt nothing. I prayed the next day and still not much. I had the sense of Be still......

    Got home from picking up one of the kids. i notice our bedroom light is on as i pull up to the house, which is a good indication she is going out again, which seems to be a little more frequent than it had been. I went to the bedroom as my normal routine...

    I always believed or understood the power of God. And always knew He can make great changes and how miracles are possible. In fact I am very certain one of our children was born healthy due to a miracle. But it sure seems I find a lot of Thomas in me...

    She stayed home last Friday because she was so tired. Still going out 3 to 4 nights a week but coming home earlier than she did months ago. I ran into someone she use to work with over a year ago. She said I know you two are having problems. We need to...

    It's now nearly 5 years since in her head she considered us divorced. And 4.5 years since she told me she wanted a legal separation/d. Man, those first months/year(s) were just brutal. You guys and gals know what that feels like. But what a journey...

    I asked her for the checkbook to balance it. She went to her car to get it. I noticed a light flash or something and looked down. She left her phone on the table. He was calling. She came in and I had a stern look on my face that caught her off guard...

    over two years of verbal attacks. Harsh words. Cutting me down to the core. And then at Thanksgiving time, it stops, she actually even says a sentence or two back to me. But the last few weeks the stress in the house seems to have gone up a bit. But nothing...

    From the last post to just now, things have been more on the peaceful side, still tension when we are both home. I have continued to start conversations. Yesterday she replied to one of my attempts, for a sentence or two. Other times she ignored what...

    Not sure how to word this....During the time of my dad's illness and after he passed away, I had been extremely busy and had little to no time to come to this site. And it hit even more how much Sean means to me and probably all of us for being here...

    I have heard many times on this site about God's perfect timing. So, as most of what I say, I just repeat what I have heard others say. Kind of like a parrot. And I have now and then had a flash of a thought what is God waiting on with me and our...

    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...
