A year ago today, I had surgery. It was minor, but when you're a mom and you go under anesthesia,
no surgery feels minor.
I had a small tumor removed.
The scar has since faded, but that day my life changed forever.
That was the day I decided I could no longer stay married.
Today I signed papers finalizing my divorce.
In the last year my life has changed dramatically.
I've become stronger than I ever thought I could.
I've learned lessons I never knew were out there.
I've seen peoples' true colors- both the good and the ugly.
I've learned how to believe in myself.
The scar is still there- on the inside and out.
What an interesting little physical reminder of such a pivotal time.
