Many of you already know that I have been facing the possibility of divorce for quite some time. Those who have been old friends and have known me since before I knew my husband know that this is something that was inevitable at some point. My newer friends know that I've been unhappy and sad in my marriage. Leaving a marriage when there are 4 children involved is not an easy decision to make and cannot be made lightly. This decision has been made in the best interest of my children and myself and ultimately, this decision will be the right thing for Brett as well.
After having considered this option for as long as I have, I feel very confident in my decision and I feel extremely optimistic about what the future holds for my children and me. It's not going to be an easy road, but I know that once we reach "the other side" we are going to be so much happier.
I think I must be among the most blessed people in the world. I have been gifted with some very amazing friends in my life and I cannot imagine my life without them. Some friends old and some friends more recent, but all of these people have lifted me up and carried me thru and with the help, support and love of my friends and family I will get thru this with grace.
And for those of you wondering whatever will become of my quest for the tiara - I am, at this time, still planning to compete in the fall. It may not work out, but I will train for it and diet for it and if my other obligations just don't allow me to do it then that's just how it is. But for now, plan to see me on stage this fall!!! :)
