“Our next chapter will be our best chapter…” This was my promise to my daughters as I looked them in their big brown eyes and explained as best I could that mommy and daddy could not be together anymore.
After 16 years together, 8 years of marriage, living in 7 different cities, 2 beautiful daughters and a championship, unfortunately, Speedy and I have decided to separate.
But not because we didn’t try or because we didn’t want our family to work. If you know me even a little bit, then you know that my family means more to me than anything else.
For the last 10 months I have fought hard for my family because I didn’t get married to get divorced. I love Craig (aka Speedy) and our family more than anything. I believe in the bond of family and the positive effect a two parent household can have on children because that’s how I was raised. It’s #FOE…Family Over Everything and that’s what I have been instilling in my kids since Day 1.
As a mother, I try my best to raise young girls to be independent, confident women but there comes a time when you have to teach by example and this was one of those times.
Giving up doesn’t always mean you’re weak. Sometimes it means you are strong enough and smart enough to let go and move on.
Craig is an amazing father and he and I will continue to co-parent. Life is about accepting what is, letting go of what was, and having the utmost faith in what will be…God’s got us
