Time for change

Six years ago today I decided after a hideous year of screaming and fighting with my husband (and after many years of indifference), to walk out and change my three kids' lives forever.

I have never looked back. I have never missed him for a single moment. I re-found the person I had lost in my marriage. And I have now married someone who makes me calm and happy.

As we've grown, each of my kids has come to me at different times and told me individually that leaving him was the best thing I ever did for me and for them. Even Léon, who was less than a year old pointed out profoundly last week that if I had not done that he would not only not have his little sisters but he would not be himself and that he couldn't imagine having grown up unable to speak Danish... a bit deep for a six year old!

It is definitely a date worth celebrating as a family.
