Today is my husband's birthday and the children are with him. I feel lonely for them, for the life I thought that I would have. I feel like a fish out of water, in this new role as "Single Mother." I'm also learning that I do not want that to be what defines me...what people first think of when thinking of me (do that many people even think of me?). So then, I'm prompted to decide, what do I want to define me? What defines me now?
These are things I will be considering as I put together my life.
