    • 11 Comments
    Tonight at the dinner table, DH brought up the subject of Thanksgiving. He said he had discussed it with his daughter a couple of weeks ago after I told him I had thought about trying to move out before Thanksgiving. The night that DH told me he had spoken...
  • R4D4 Couldn't do it

    • 11 Comments
    I didn't get today's dare done. I can't call him during the day at work. I can text and he can text back when he has a chance. I had an opportunity to text him and ask if I could do anything for him today, but I chickened out. I am doing SO...
  • R3D22 Did it in R1 but not today....

    I couldn't bring myself to complete today's dare. What used to be so easy to say is now so difficult, and not because I don't mean it. I told him 4 nights ago that I love him and that I always will. It was the night that he told me he had...

    My husband‘s company picnic is tomorrow afternoon at a local amusement park. In the past, he and I have always gone together. The company pays for anyone living in your household. Then, they allow you to purchase extra tickets at a discount for...
  • R2D23 Love protects

    • 6 Comments
    Dare 23 - love always protects. It is interesting that this dare fell today in light of my Bible study last night. Our study leader said that there are two sides to God's love, nurture and protection. The nurturing side includes His compassion, mercy...
  • Oh boy, now what???

    • 6 Comments
    Well I just thought things were getting better. DH told me on the way to bed tonight that he wants a divorce and that his mind is made up. He says he told his daughter 2 weeks ago. We chatted for a while, very calmly. He says that he gave it more time...
  • Day 31 My Number 1 Priority

    • 6 Comments
    Today was another difficult dare for me. As DH becomes more distant, it is increasingly difficult to do the dares. Neither one of us has issues with not leaving our parents. His are both deceased, as is my mom. I believe he has had issues leaving his...
  • Why do I second guess myself constantly??!!!

    • 6 Comments
    I hope that I just did the right thing. My husband mentioned to me before he left for work this morning that his company has reinstated the company picnic. Up until last year, the company had always done a picnic at a local amusement park. They provided...

    It's long tonight.........Today's dare was hard. I cook dinner for us every night. Knowing that DH met with an attorney today, I really wasn't in the mood to cook dinner. However, I came home from work and cooked dinner even though I didn't...

    Tonight I sat down thinking that I would just have to admit that I didn't get the dare done today. I have been on the run all day long and couldn't even remember what the dare was for today. I sat down this evening to read it, and realized that...
  • R3D37 Crying in public is never fun.....

    • 6 Comments
    Today's dare was prayer. I had a fitful night last night, and I called in and took a vacation day today. I spent a lot of time in prayer today, most of it in tears. I have cried harder today than any day since this nightmare began. To top it off,...
  • R3D35 Counsel

    "Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisors bring success." After reading today's dare, these words in Proverbs have been on my mind all day. I have been very fortunate to have wonderful Christian counsel during this ordeal. But each...
  • R3D36 Clinging to His Word

    • 5 Comments
    I asked DH what he meant last Tuesday when he asked what I thought. He was basically wanting to know what my plans were. I told him that I didn't have any plans. He hasn’t filed for divorce yet because he was waiting for my house to be ready...
  • Anxious about the holidays

    • 5 Comments
    I know that God‘s word tells us not to be anxious. But I find myself in what I think is best described as an anxious state. With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, I have no idea what the plans are. In the past, my husband’s family including...
  • Day 29 I'm living in awe

    • 5 Comments
    Well, I completed 2/3 of today's dare. I prayed for DH by name for a very long time this morning before I left for work. Oh how good it is to be able to lift him and our marriage to our Heavenly Father in prayer. I also was able to do something tangible...
  • R2D5 Couldn't complete the dare :(

    • 5 Comments
    Confession time. I couldn't bring myself to do the dare yesterday. I asked DH back before I started the dares what I did that irritated him. He told me a couple of things, and I have worked hard to stop doing them. I then asked him again during Round...
  • R2D11 I tried.....

    • 5 Comments
    My attempt at the dare today was pretty lame! The dare for day 11 differs between what is online and what is in the book, even though they are both about cherishing our spouses. The book suggests giving your spouse a touch that says you cherish them,...
  • Day 37 Prayer

    • 5 Comments
    Prayer. Nothing gives me more peace than spending time in prayer. I didn't have to be at work until a little later this morning, and I spent 3 hours in the word and in prayer. The Spirit led me to pray Psalm 119 this morning, among other things. I...
  • R2D1 The glass really is half full!!

    • 5 Comments
    Praises! Another great day! I don't know if it is a change in my DH or a change in me, or perhaps a change in both of us, but my DH seemed more like himself today. I got up and took the dog to the park for a long walk. The weather was wonderful, and...
  • R2D2 He said thank-you!

    For today's dare, I chose laundry! My DH takes care of his own laundry, and I take care of mine. He put some clothes in to wash before leaving for work this morning, and made the comment that he didn't have anything clean to put on when he got...
  • R3D5 Humbled

    • 5 Comments
    A long post tonight........Apparently it has really irritated my DH that I have walked around for the last couple of months like I am "walking on eggshells". I think he is referring to my apprehension to do or say things at times. Also for a...
  • R2D40 What a "ride"

    • 4 Comments
    I hit the ground running this morning, and we just got home from my DH's company picnic at the amusement park. I met a lot of people that DH works with, and he introduced me to every single one of them that we ran into. I can't really ride the...
  • R2D36 Clinging to God's word

    • 4 Comments
    My DH is not at a point that we can read the Bible together, but I am in the word every morning before work during the workweek, and on Sundays before church. I will have to admit, on Saturdays, every once in a while I will sleep in and I may or may not...
  • R2D37 An epic failure???

    • 4 Comments
    Well, Dare 37 of round 2, and I still can't do it. I can't ask him if we can pray together. I cannot seem to overcome my hesitation. I pray FOR him everyday. I would love to pray WITH him, but that isn't going to happen right now. If I asked...
  • R2D10 Buying cookies for God

    • 4 Comments
    I had a hard time figuring out what to do for today's dare. I help with his laundry from time to time so I didn't feel that was anything very special. I really had a hard time coming up with something out of the ordinary. I finally decided to...
