The Big Thaw

The holidays are over.  The new year is here.  It's time to plug back into the word and give some of my time back to regular writing here.  Thanks to all those who kept in touch via email, text, phone calls and the occasional awesome Christmas card!!  Thank you!

The Scabs home has felt a healthy dose of the Big Thaw.  Thanks to Mr. Scabs this holidays season has been the most memorable, the most loving, the most fun.  We have felt more whole than ever.  I see the difference in our children.  

The Big Thaw is fragile but it feels like a tipping point.

Enough change, transparency and humility from Mr. Scabs has allowed me to warm up to him.  Enough solid action and honest apologies.  Change is slow.  Even one year ago this change seemed impossible.   In fact, one year ago divorce papers were burning up a folder on my desk.  I had made up my mind.

So, this year I will tell the story of how and why I decided to stay.  
Isn't that the million dollar question?

Why do you stay?
