Ugly Hope

Some days I don’t know what to pray for.

My ugly hope is:  If she is going to relapse, I hope she relapses before he goes back to her, and not after.



*It is hard for me to type the words “back to her,” as he has never lived with her. But, he lived in her for nine months, and that is a lot.

    One way or another, you’re going to come back to this post a year from now, or two years from now and be awed at the tenderness in your heart.

    And by the way, I’ve held that hope more times than I can count. “Lord, if they’re going to screw this up, let ’em hurry up and get it over with before ____________ gets hurt any worse than they already are. Amen.”

    You’re not alone.
