Tonight I am grateful for archives; tools of teaching that hold up what was… A search for hope on our blog brings up an interesting array of posts.

There is one from 2012. In it I can see that my relationship with Liz was faltering, burning up from what I see from my post.

I am grateful that these archives remind my rose tinted mind that there were other stories at play as well.

I’m also grateful for the words I heard tonight; that we did have a long, successful relationship — and though I witness my propensity at times to villainize Liz and others involved with our marriage ending, the truth is, it was ending for a while.

I remain hopeful… for everything. for everyone.
