I got all “deep” last year.
This year? Nope.
This year I want you to meet some people.
How fortunate and blessed am I to be 35 years old and still have both of my grandmas living? Getting to know your grandparents as an adult is a fabulous thing that most people don’t have the privilege of experiencing.
And you know what? Sometimes there’s a silver lining in divorce. I’m a big believer that people come into your life when you need to know them and that there’s never a trial without something good to help you get through said trial, even if you don’t recognize it as the “good thing” at the time. My sister and I joke that we’re thankful for divorce and teen pregnancy, because we needed to be sisters. And when everyone can put their differences aside? More people to love your kids, and kids can never have too many people that love them, right? (Random story alert: One year we threatened Macy with no Santa if she didn’t shape up. She said “That’s OK, I have enough grandmas and grandpas!”…7grandmas and 4 grandpas at the time!)
So, take a minute today to thank someone that’s helped and supported you on this mothering journey, will ya?
