i read these words and couldn't help think of a friend who went thru the betrayal of marrying a man she never really knew. it was heartbreaking for her, yet today she stands with more wisdom, strength and belief in herself than she ever did before. some lessons hit hard and yet at the same time provide such an amazing opportunity for growth....
