“It is said that all relationships serve one of two purposes – entertainment or educational.”

I learned many things but the lesson I find the most important is this – even the darkest storm cloud truly does have a silver lining.  I honestly say he changed who I am at the very core, for the better I believe.  My whole life I was right brained like my father.  A math whiz, very compulsive, with a tendency to be ridged.  I desperately longed to be more like my left brained mom – creative, artistic and flexible.  But no amount of art classes, practice, or encouragement from mom could change the reality that I lacked artistic talent.  Then along came prince charming – boxing my ears, bashing my head into walls and floors, and often choking me until I’d lose consciousness.  I thought he was going to end my life but thanks to the amazing healing powers of the human brain he gave me a new life.  The life of an artist.  Most of the damage was sustained on the right side of my brain, the left side began to compensate and I grew stronger.  I now get to experience life as a left-brain person.  Few folks get the chance to be both right and left brained in their life.  So I consider what my abusive (soon to be ex) husband gave me a unique wedding gift and a serious lesson in seeing the positive in absolutely any situation.
