The long and winding road

I've been talking with Scott twice a week. I am simply amazed at the changes he has made. I don't know if I've shared this with you, but he's serving what is called a diversionary program. Basically, a sentence before a sentence here in Idaho. It's a chance for first time offenders to redeem themselves. They really push personal counseling and spiritual growth. And I have got to tell you, I think it's working.

Our last conversation was basically Scott rehashing what we've already been through. But, the difference this time? He actually faced his part in our troubles. While I know I haven't been perfect, he's been far from and has never wanted to admit that. It was always someones fault, not his own. Now he realizes (I hope) that he was to blame for the mistakes he made. And he realizes that they were mistakes. To narrow it down here; he's healing.

I know the road to our healing of our marriage is going to be long. But, I can see now that the road we're on is leading to a good place. And for that I am grateful.
