a chistmas poem my mom gave me... i just posted on another thread opps, need coffee

For You At Christmas

If I could do whate'er I want to do
To make glad your Christmas day,
I would not bring a thing to you,
But would take some things away.

I'd take all troubles from your heart,
Each pain and sorrow would be relieved.
And every word that caused a single smart,
And every hour through which you grieved.

I'd have them all forever gone,
Forgotten, like things that cannot be,
Then each hour would be a joyous one,
For only good things would be left, you see.

That's what I'd REALLY like to do
If I could do the things I wish for you!

A very Merry Christmas from me.

God give me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The Courage to change the things I can and
The Wisdom to know the difference

This Christmas, I am very thankful for the Lord's blessings.
Avout 6 months ago, after listening to my wife continually complain about me, I started going to counseling. I learned that I have been emtionally unavailable to my wife;
A couple months later, my wifes online affair changed into an emotional affair with almost daily contact with OM. In october, I confronted her with phone bills; she left for a week. I was devastated and purchased a book Surviving an Affair by Dr Haley. I read about Jon and Sue and could identify with that case example. I learned about Love Bank and emotional needs.
Then I watched the movie Fireproof and prayed to God to help me be a good husband and man.
Since then I have read other books and I also found this Forum. The generous people on this Forum have come together to help others in need, and the Forum has helped me understand my ww actions, learn how to deal with them, and stop allowing my ww affair ruin my life.
I truly believe God placed these books (Surviving an Affair and Fireproof literally were eye openers) in my life at the time He knew I would need them; and I believe He lead me to this Forum. I am very thankful.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, MY MARRIAGE BUILDING FRIENDS! My wish is for joy and over-flowing stockings for all of you!

And to all hurting spouses, I pray that you know the peace that comes from understanding that God holds you in His Hand. Christmas can be a sad time for betrayed spouses as they feel the pain that comes from infidelity. Remember that even in the darkest hours you are not alone - God has sent angels to comfort you. Be still, look around you and you will see and hear them.
