I have flashes of insight that I share when I feel brave enough. In 2004, my husband suffered a severe mental and emotional breakdown. During that time, we separated, our eldest son was diagnosed with autism, I suffered my own depression, and I learned more about God's grace and nearness than I could ever have hoped for. After six months, our marriage reconciled, and over the last nine years we've gotten healthy together. Life is still a daily thing, and our six children add to the chaos, but my sanity comes to visit occasionally, so that's nice.
