It is just so weird to me to think that Taylor is no longer married. The divorce is now final as of a few days ago. They had been separated for six months. I learned so much about Taylor as I watched her "be alone" and stand so strong. I have watched her go to church alone, re-paint her condo to make it seem like a fresh start, start eating very healthy, and mourn the loss of her marriage.
She used this time to get to "know herself" and grow from the experience. She did not date. She felt until she was legally divorced she should wait. It was her personal choice and one I felt was wise. She is now in a better place. She is happy and is holds no bitterness. I am very thankful that the divorce never turned nasty. It is probably much easier since they did not have kids together.
She took this photo of herself this week. It's my new favorite.
I think our trials truly do "refine" us. I see her 1,000% stronger and she exudes confidence. She has accepted the consequences and decided to grow from the experience. I'm sure some people did and will judge her for being 22 and divorced. That is okay... I remind her often that I love her and life is about learning and growing. The people in life who truly matter are going to be beside us when we excel and when we stumble and need a hand to pick us up.
Her sisters have been there for her. McKay keeps all of us laughing!
This is Koda. He is Taylor's dog. I can honestly say that this cute little dog truly helped her so much. I am so thankful she has her "baby."
Taylor had her family to support her and always will. I am thankful that we are so close. (mckay, gentry, taylor and I) I wish like crazy that it would have worked out. I won't go into the details or more than I have said in the past. I will say I still care deeply for Spencer. I will always forever pray for his happiness.
Taylor- I love you and am always going to support you!!!!! xoxo
