personal

Hm...not sure what to write here exactly.

I appreciate all the prayers and thoughts for me and my family. I know most of you would like an explanation, but I am not ready to talk to anyone about all that is going on. Just know that Brian has been truly remarkable throughout the whole thing. It is important to me that you know that. Even though he disagrees with some of the decisions I've made he has been kind and gracious to me. I expected nothing less. He was always that way. Also I wanted to let everyone know that the kids are in the forefront of my mind. I will be a bike ride away from them at most, and they will be seeing me on a daily basis. In no way am I abandoning them or my role as their mother. Beyond that I don't have anything else to say yet. Maybe I never will. This is personal, and I need to keep it that way for now.

I don't know you other than from this space but what I do know is that you love your kids.

I'm sorry you're having a rough time right now. (((hugs)))

Take the time. No questions, just xoxo.

Anyone who knows you (even through a blog) knows you would never abandon your kids. You've got to do what you feel is right for you.

Good luck.

I honestly don't know what to say... other than the fact that I am praying for you and sending good vibes your way.

{{{Hugs}}}

I only know you through this blog, too, but that didn't keep me from crying when I read this. We all go through hard times in our lives and I feel so sad for you because I can see you're struggling. I was hoping that your lack of writing was just because you were so busy with your job. In any case, I hope you're writing for yourself in your personal diary. Good luck, Natalie.

Take care of yourself. Sometimes that is the best way to take care of your kids. You are in my thoughts.

Take all the time you need. Do what is good for you, your kids, your family.

Hope everything is ok. I'm only an e-mail or phone call away if you need anything.

XOXO

I'm so sorry to hear that things are difficult for you at all. It's been a tough year, for sure. Please know there are people out there praying for you and hoping for the best possible outcome. And if you decide to abandon all of this, that's ok, too.

Real friends don't judge, they just stay firmly in place in plain sight so you'll always have a place to stop & rest a bit from life's bumpy spots.

One thing Old Injun is certain of, the only thing that's certain is change. Somehow the sun always seems to find its way back to us every morning.

Meanwhile, I'm thinking of all of you daily.

Praying for you Natalie. We love you all!

Natalie, I can't seem to get you off my heart and mind the past couple of days. I just wanted to let you know I am praying for you and in fact I just finished praying for you before I logged on to leave this comment.

Thinking of you and sending many hugs your way.
