What A Day

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.

Today's prompt: Post an old photo, and tell us what was happening at that moment
