I’d been separated for about 7 months when I came across this book.

When Amazon delivered it, I opened it up and read the cover, “Broken heart…
Ew.
Did I have a broken heart?
Was I on hold?

NOPE!!!
I denied both of those and threw the book in a drawer.  I threw everything, that didn’t have to be done right then, in a drawer.  Survival was the only thing on my mind.  Having a broken heart or being on hold, if I was honest, scared the crap out of me, so off to the drawer they go!

I’d see the book once in awhile when I’d open that drawer.  Almost like God saying to me, “Girlfriend, I’m here!!! Read me!!!”  But I rolled my eyes and slammed it closed.

Then, after the husband moved home and thing were bit calmer, they still were “off”, however even though we shared a bed, and fooled around once in awhile…he was still ‘wandering the earth looking for anything that made him feel better.  Even texting/contacting other girls made him feel young and sexy and well…I, the lady who worried about spending too much money, just couldn’t compete.

It was at this time the book peered out of that drawer and I grabbed it like a life preserver.  Okay.
I’m ready.
I took it to the gym (I can’t read this stuff at home!)
It was there I read and read and read.  Feeding my soul page after page.

There are prayers and bible quotes…which may seem silly to some…however if you believe in God or not, they are there to embellish the story.

I will say this book, “Broken Heart On Hold” is excellent.  Written true and from the heart, I wish I’d read it earlier.  But then again, I wasn’t ready.  God finds his magic to get into you just in time.
