I hesitate to ever say or write much until it's absolutely finished and the divorce papers are signed by a judge, but we are working together in good faith and good love right now to give our girls the best of both of us. Unfortunately for me, to get to this good place, I'm not going to be with them every day anymore. Good for them, sad for me.
One little pearl I've tried hard during the last few weeks to give them is a few lines of poetry. I don't even remember where I first saw this gem, but it has become our little bit of love that they will have in their hearts even when I'm not around.
Mama says be good,
Mama says be kind,
Mama says the rain will come,
Yet still the sun will shine.
