I have realized that life is filled with moments. I have had so many moments that have changed me through this new journey.
I had a moment the other night. I had to attend my daughter’s school activity. I had a moment and began to think. As I look around the room I see other woman I know that are divorced. I wonder how they do it. I wonder how they have been doing it. I begin to realize that I am in a room full of people. I see them. I hear them. Even though I see them and hear them, I am alone. It was a moment. I know others have been through this. I know that I am not the only one to go through a divorce. It feels weird. It feels different. It feels lonely.
One moment can change everything.
One moment can be the longest moment.
