Lord, hear my selfish prayer...

reverendmother said...

It is finished, eh?

"I want a divorce" by e-mail---great googly moogly.

Songbird said...

Oh, glad to hear self-care is part of this day. (And I mean chick-fil-a, too.) (((ws)))

DogBlogger said...

You should go all out... get waffle fries AND a shake!

Great friend to have in your camp today.

Is this a day I'm allowed to send a hug??

And then lots of good things with people who love you and understand.

more cows than people said...

sounds like a well planned, if truly difficult day.

blessings, ws.

the tide has turned, right? so not betting on 2/14, but murphy is so often stinkin' right.

AKMA said...

Nothing but love and prayers from this corner. Bless you, WS, and bless Will, and glorious better things ahead.

imngrace said...

I'm not afraid to give you a hug!

Let us row awhile, while you take a well-needed break!

Blessings and grace, dear friend!

does chick-fil-a have wine?

Mark Smith said...

Any judge who would formalize a divorce on Valentine's Day should be taken out and shot.

It can wait a day.

Preacher Mom said...

The judge signed off on my divorce papers on my birthday. Now, with eleven years' distance, I see that he actually gave me a great birthday present. There are so many things that have happened in my life - ministry and two adoptions, to name a few - that have been such blessings but would never have happened without that gift.

Oh, and Chick-fil-a cookies and cream milkshakes will make almost anything feel better!

Rev Dave said...

I'm with Mark--but I'm sure today will always be "the day when" for you. So sorry. Prayers for you and the Boy, and as much as I hate it, TD-ex. (I'd really rather turn him over to the guy who sacked Brady so emphatically in the final seconds of the Super Bowl.)

will smama said...

You see Mark, I was actually thinking if I were a judge I would save them for that day but I have never been big on the Valentine's thing.

And Preacher Mom, believe me I hear you. I know that in the long and even medium runs this frees me to be who God is calling me to be. Already I am a better Mom and steward of God's creation... but in the short run I am taking a little time to mourn.

My friend preached a brilliant sermon on the Sunday before I came back to the pulpit here after our daughter died reminding the faithful that it is okay to say, "Ouch, that hurt."

And that is what I have been saying this entire week.

Thank you all. Really. You're rowing has been my lifeline more than once through all of this.

I was divorced for nearly a month before the courts mailed my papers back to the attorney, which meant I had begun the new year (2006) a single woman. By that time, I was relieved and happy. But he moved out 2 years earlier on what I called "President's Day Weekend" until I finally let myself admit it was Valentine's Day weekend.

(((WS)))

Enjoy the Chick Fil A and the Boy.

blessings, ws. *[

Sue said...

Blessings WS. I'm glad you fit a massage into your schedule today.

Mark Smith said...

We're not rowing.

We're just supplying oars.

You're doing the rowing.

(((WS)))

Psalmist said...

I have been there, too, Will Smama. You are in my prayers big-time.

the reverend mommy said...

Email.

I'm still processing that...

Email. Wow.

I'm glad that you have someone to do the lunch thing with.

Keep on rowing...

zorra said...

I pray for a peaceful weekend, with good friends nearby. Glad you are taking care of yourself today.

Massage good! Beer needed?

RevHRod said...

Prayers for you. I hope the Chick-Fil-A was all it should have been.

You've built some great muscles with all this rowing. Hope you get to just float soon.

peripateticpolarbear said...

Chick Fil-a has very good french fries. I'm just saying. I hope you had something like 2000 orders of them. Because rowing burns a lot of calories. By now it's the day after, and I hope it's a good one.

Susie/Nueva Cantora said...

I hope the massage was all you did between 1 and dinner. And I hope today is a lighter day.

mid-life rookie said...

Like ppb, I'm here on the day after. Mourning is good. Knowing that one day you will feel better is also good. As for Valentine's Day, I was on call at the hospital on that day last year. One guy's fiance shot him in the rear while he was shaving in the bathroom. That meant he came to the hospital with no clothes on and his house was taped off as a crime scene. Had to find him clothes to go home in. Another guy's girlfriend stabbed him. Valentine's Day didn't go so well for either of them. Neither was seriously injured. So all in all your's probably won't be that bad.

mibi52 said...

You've survived. You've had Chik-Fil-A and a massage. It will get better in a while.

My divorce was finalized on 2/12 a number of years ago...I ate a lot of chocolate (the kind I liked, not the kind he liked) on 2/14.

You are brave and strong, and the future will be better. Prayers for you.

God_Guurrlll said...

Prayers of healing and strength for you. Please know that Jesus is on the boat with you as you keep rowing. Peace.

Scrivener said...

Best wishes to you. Congratulations and condolences both.

(By the way, my wife phoned me from work to say she wanted a divorce. And then a couple of minutes after she said the words, told me that she needed to get on a conference call so she had to go.)
