Who Thanks someone for leaving them? Especially a Mother with small children.
I would have had a few choice words but I have to tell you “Thank You” would have not come to mind.
Today, I Celebrate a Dear Friend. Farhana Dhalla. She did say Thank You and what’s more is she wrote a book about it.
Thank You for Leaving Me: Finding Divinity in Divorce by Farhana Dhalla
What can I say about Farhana….
First “I Love Her!” She is an Author, Speaker, Coach, Mother, Lover and Friend. Not necessarily in that order. Really she is much more than this. She is committed to Empowering Women.
I always enjoy her presence. Any chance I get to squeeze her – I take.
Now about the book – when I read it – I went through emotions of fear, laughter and relief.
I have a hard time picking a piece of this wonderful book to quote, as there are so many that ring true for me.
But this one really hit home.
“Then one day, after we split, it hit me… perhaps those messages about love were about ME loving ME more.” Vignette 25
Farhana and I have had conversations around it.
Farhana – I LOVE OUR CONVERSATIONS
I LOVE BEING IN THE FRONT ROW!
If you too are a friend of Farhana’s I encourage you to support her on her Journey – It’s one We all share.
