Had some pretty rough nightmares last night. Mostly because I fell asleep remembering one of the worst times of my former marriage...wondering why, why in the world didn't I call the cops when it happened...that time...the kids were so terrified, they were hiding in their closet...that time of broken walls, broken doors, smashed door jambs, shattered wooden chair, broken hardwood floor...that time when I cried so hard I couldn't stand up...why didn't I call for help? A million reasons, and none of them good. Be BRAVE. Be smart. Don't second guess yourself. Sometimes it's okay to put away the Nice, and do what needs to be done.... I didn't.... I wish I had.
