Digging up bones

I'm spending the afternoon shuttling back and forth from my ex-wife's house to mine. We divorced 18 months ago. With her impending move she is selling off everything.
We're sorting through everything. She can't take too much as it costs more than it's worth to ship over seas.
It's like getting divorced a second time. I find it very hard to look at the photo's of us as a family. We were near almost to tears at one point.
This is the hardest thing I've had to do in my life y'all.

My heart weeps anew from pain that I thought I'd already been through. This is far worse. When we're done, the life we had in the past, our life, will be nothing but memories for the both of us. And not much except photo's and a few odds and ends to remind us of the dreams we shared when we wed.

I know you're with me buddy. Give me the strength to get through this with strength and serenity. Show me how I can help these two people. How I can help them to get through this as painlessly and effortlessly as possible.
Give me the fortitude to be able to help her with the things that will cause me the most pain. Remove my fear of tomorrow and what may come and give me the sight to see things as they are today. She's got nobody to help her except me. I can do this with your help. I need your help man.
