Episode #35: Food For Thought Friday- My Husband's Mistress

Episode #35:  Food For Thought Friday- My Husband's Mistress

This is a long story. One that has taken me nearly 20 years to write. If you don’t have a relationship in your life, then this story may not interest you, but if you love, are, or know anyone who has a passion greater than most, you may get something from it. It wasn’t an easy story to live or write about. It’s not easy to share our flaws, our secrets, our fears. Relationships, especially marriages, usually always have something to teach us. My teacher was coming to love a man who loves hunting, and through that, realizing that I didn’t need to make him choose. He could love us both.
