You may or may not have noticed that I haven't really talked about the divorce here on the blog lately.
That's because last time we went before lawyers it was used against me. Not sure if I shared that?
But it was. So I thought it would be best to not discuss anything on the interwebz until it was over.
Tuesday morning we had our mediation and everything was settled and agreed upon within an hour (ish).
To say that I was shocked would be an understatement.
I was convinced that we would be going before a judge and would have to have things settled that way.
But everything went smoothly and everyone left happy. I think?
I'm happy with the outcome and I felt a huge weight lift from my shoulders.
Sometime next week my lawyer and I will go before a judge, have it signed, and I will be divorced.
Everything will be done and I'll be able to move on completely.
The night before and the morning of Tuesday, I was a a giant mess.
So anxious about everything and just couldn't calm myself.
A long talk with God on the way to the office and a verse read from Molly, put everything into perspective and I instantly felt at peace with what was to come.
Ah! Here is the verse:
John 14: 19-21
"Sometimes people wish they knew the future so they could prepare for it. God has chosen not to give us this knowledge. He alone knows what will happen, but he tells us all we need to know to prepare for the future. When we live by his standards, he will not leave us; he will come to us, he will be in us, and he will show himself to us. God knows what will happen and because he will be with us through it all, we need not fear. We don't have to know the future to have faith in God; we have to have faith in God to be secure about the future."
It was perfect timing. and I knew everything would be okay.
Thanks so much for the prayers, tweets, and emails on Tuesday and throughout this entire process!
Now I can breathe. I can go on with life since there's an established routine. AND? I'm a single ladaaay.
The "Shoulda Kept a Ring On It" face.
What? You thought there wouldn't be a funny in this post?
