Oh, Karen, your praise makes me cry. And your writing and your revelations as well. What a beautiful story. I’m so glad you’re writing a book about this experience. Much of what you have said here is giving me major food for thought. I have a story like yours, with my children’s father. I’ve skirted close to the re-framing you espouse.. but never really — nothing shattered and fell away (such amazing phrasing and imagery, perfect). :)
