I had a good cry today. I just let it all out and sobbed until my throat was raw. The poor little bumper did not like seeing her mama so upset, and she tried to give me a hug. When I felt better I was able to take her for a walk in the backyard at my mother's place. The bumper had such fun chasing all the stray cats! Tonight I am going to pray for peace. I know God will show me what to do, but I need to be willing to listen.

I went to my first Domestic Violence group therapy session tonight. I felt so awkward and strange. I nearly burst into tears at hearing my story come out of the mouths of the other women there. Similar to 12step programs there is a camaraderie that forms out of having the same kind of experiences. I know two things for sure: I have been the victim of verbal abuse and I am not alone.

When I started this blog I had high hopes of writing of the ordinary joys and sorrows of middle –class homemaker. I envisioned posts about writing poetry, my growing baby girl, my crafts and hobbies, baking, housekeeping, and my walk with Jesus. However I have found my self in a verbally and emotionally abusive marriage. I still want to blog, but I have to be truthful. My entries may be painful to write, and painful to read, but they will be real.
I hope by sharing my experience I can be of service to others in similar situations.Yours in Christ
