I Spy Your Cheatin’ Eye

     Craigslist. The bargain basement experience of all things that allow us to function. Jobs. Relationships. Community. So I’m trolling the ads like millions of others laid off and looking for work and I come across this:  

     MY WIFE CHEATED ON ME AND MY THREE CHILDREN, SHE HAS REPENTED AND HAS AGREED TO BE FOLLOWED AROUND BY SOME ONE TO SHOW THAT SHE IS NOT CHEATING ANY MORE. YOU NEED A CAR AND A CELL PHONE. HOURS ARE 10-2 AND WILL BE PAID $100 CASH PER DAY FOR FOUR HOURS OF WORK. MOSTLY JUST DRIVING AROUND FOLLOWING HER AROUND AND TELLING ME WHAT SHE IS DOING. IF SHE SEES YOU, ITS NO BIG DEAL, AS SHE HAS AGREED TO BE FOLLOWED. 
-MUST HAVE CAR AND A CELL PHONE. 

SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY..  

   This is what happens next after betrayal. One can imagine the dialogue between this couple. The accusations, the conversations that circle and loop and tug at any phrase that might be a lie.  The dark shadow that wakes and walks with them. The pain in that CL post is palpable, but can be overcome. Just like every other setback in life, whether it is betrayal or job loss. Take a breath and remember it is not the end of the world, it’s an opportunity, for you, for us to grow into something, someone different. Change never feels good, but when it comes fold into it. Kick. Scream. Cry. Ask for help.  Then unfold and take a look at what was waiting to get out. 

    Play the hand that’s dealt to you, and play it elegantly. 

    Something spectacular is just around the bend…

    That’s right and I thought long and hard about doing it. Heck! That’s groceries for a week or two!

    This man is heartbroken. The situation is probably way complicated. I’d pray for them and stay away…
