Today we learned that two of our friends had separated, and intended to divorce. The second set of friends in the Christmas season.
None of these people expected this to happen when they tied the knot many years ago.
But life rarely gives us what we expect.
And I think that makes it especially hard.
There’s no script for the future as the map has been destroyed. It’s like being in limbo, immersed in hurt and pain.
But we humans are resilient, and that engenders hope. Who knows what will happen once the trauma’s been worked through, and they find the strength and courage to re-create their lives.
