I promised an update and here is the beginning of the fulfillment of that promise...

So life here has changed a lot. Don't worry, it's been a long but positive transition, and it's definitely still in transition mode. I never shared on here because I feel it's personal and the story isn't for everyone at this point. My husband (referred to as "Adonis" on here) and I are no longer together. The road to this point was long and rocky, those who are close to me knew what was happening even when I tried my best to hide it and change it, but last year we reached the point where everything was clear. My surgery was also a great diversion from having to share any of this with you who have supported me for so long.

Now you know and maybe now my long absence makes more sense. Living alone means much more responsibility and that's a good thing, but it keeps me away. Also, I work a lot more these days. I will be a little more free since holiday in retail has passed....*sigh*

My Christmas gift to the girls was a well as a birthday present to myself. Get ready for pictures of her because I am aching to use my camera again and she is so darn cute I can't help but take pics all the time. The girls appreciate a break from being my constant muses anyway. :-)

You know I'm always here for you sweetie. I know you've been going through so much, you are stronger than you know. Love you to the moon and back!

I am so sorry for everything you have had to go through. However, I know that you are strong & you will be ok :) I haven't seen you at Shoreline in a long time and I don't know what you thought about it, but I hope that you will come back with your precious girls. The children's ministry is amazing! Also, on Sunday nights at 7 they have a special service called "Lift Young Adults" that is for 18-35 yr. olds. They are some really cool people that attend that service!

Also, I know we don't know each other that well and I'm just "Nikki's sister" but if you need anything please don't hesitate to ask! I don't think I live that far from you, and would love to help out w/ your girls if you ever need someone :)

I suspected as much months and months ago, though I could not tell you why if you asked me. I've been praying for you ever since, knowing that is the best thing I could do for you. {{{hugs}}}
