This note is way overdue. I (we) would like to thank you for all of your help and support. How do you express “thanks” for saving a marriage? It seems too immense for a simple “thank you”, yet what else can we do? I guess one idea would be to live out the techniques you taught us and have a peaceful, loving relationship.
When the rector of our church first contacted you, Jimmy and I had been separated for a year. The legal separation/divorce papers had been written and signed, but we had not yet gone to court. I had already attended a DivoreCare course. Our marriage was basically over.
Jimmy wanted to try one more time. We had gone through marital counseling in the past, and I frankly was not very excited or interested in trying it again. I really don’t know why I agreed to work with you, but I am so thankful that I did. You gave us real hands-on, nuts-and-bolts skills to use for communication. We desperately needed these tools. Your program is such in intensive one and covers so many relational issues. Being able to call you in between sessions and talk out concerns as they arose was invaluable. After working with you for a few months, it seemed like our relationship just might have a chance after all.
As you know, Jimmy and I reconciled five months ago. We actually renewed our vows and went on a second honeymoon weekend get-away. I cannot say that our relationship is problem-free, but what relationship is? We definitely still have issues on which to continue working, but I can honestly say I am very happy that we did not go through with a divorce. We have a wonderful six year old son, who is thrilled to have his family back together. As long as we keep working hard, I am confident that we can have a healthy, even happy marriage.
Again, Jimmy and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
