Many of my friends and our customers have wondered why I have been so quiet lately. I have always been open and honest about my life for the last 8 years with our customers as they are my family too.
I thought long and hard before writing this and realized that sharing my life previously has always helped someone going through the same thing. Maybe if I share what I am going through now, it will help someone again.
Four weeks ago I was away at Affiliate Summit Conference. The night before I was to come home, everything was fine. Made plans with husband for a date over the weekend and he would pick me up at the airport the next day.
My plane was late coming in and I could not get a hold of him to tell him. He told me he was having problems with breathing lately so I got worried. I landed and he was not there to pick me up. I got really scared. Called his Dad and they had not heard from him. Called my mom and she saw him that morning and he said he was coming to get me. Called my son and he said he came to his school to sign paperwork. All was fine, so where is he? I sent someone to my house and to make sure he was ok.
My phone rang.
“I don’t know how to tell you this. His stuff is gone. There is a lot of stuff gone from the house.”
My stomach felt like someone had knocked the wind right out of me.
My world just crashed.
I had no idea.
I think the worst part for me is that not only did I lose my husband, my trust that took me so long to build after leaving an abusive ex-husband, and my heart…. But I also lost 3 children that I loved, a mother and father in law that I care for deeply, and a brother in law that was more like a brother to me. Forget the money and things; those will be replaced one day. I lost half of my family.
It’s been 3 weeks today since that horrible day that I came home to find my whole world turned upside down.
Each day it gets a little easier. Each day it gets a little harder too.
But I started this amazing business as a single mother of two wonderful boys and I will continue to run this business as a single mother of two wonderful teenage boys who have been my rock, my love, and my everything. Thank you Justin and Andrew for being the two best kids a mom could ever have.
