I've filed the papers.
I've told the Princesses.
It's not over....by a long shot, but some day in the not-too-distant future it will be.
But I have set my feet on this path and am convinced it is the right thing for everybody involved.
This is an incredibly painful time in my life but even more so for the princesses. They are the ones who will suffer the most during this change. Pray for them. Think kindly of them. Send them your good energy, they will need it.
It is not a decision that I have taken lightly. The title of this post has been my password on my email account since 2002. I kept waiting for a sign from God that would tell me the right thing to do. Of course, a sign never came and I stopped waiting...and started therapy.
I can only say this...I am trying to make this as elegant a sea change as possible for my daughters, their father, and myself. It will not be easy for any of us.
That is all I have to say about it.
