God bless u for writing this. Sometimes we feel like the only ones going through something like this, and it helps to hear it's not unique.


This is my second holiday season since the divorce--its not possible for us to spend any time togetherwithout the potential for negativity, but I am making sure to make a big happy deal about the things the kids get to do with their dad and his family--though its painful for me, his family is still the kids family, and I think its important to support all that they do with the "other" family too. Also am trying to relish in the moments we have together, and enjoy some extra time for shopping, relaxing & celebrating with friends and family when I do not have them & otherwise might feel sad about it...
