I know I have not been around much. I just don't seem to know what to post about. Then I thought , why not post about my beautiful little grand babies. They are truly my joy and what keeps me going. In fact all my kids(inlaws included) keep me going. Some days it is hard, but when I see my kids and granddaughters all is right with the world. Christmas is only a week away and I approach it with much anxiety. This year I have been invited to my daughters for Christmas. She is so excited about hosting Christmas at her home this year( for the first time). She has also invited her dad to join us(my ex) and his new wife and new family. This will be a first. I don't know how the day will play out. I pray that it will all go smooth. There has been a lot of hurt that has come from this divorce. Hurt mostly on my part, so I don't know how it will be. I hope it will not be too stressful. If I feel too overwhelmed I will just have to excuse myself and quietly withdraw. My kids do have a right to be with their dad too. So we will see what happens. Are my grand babies cute or what. I adore them.

Abby will be 3 in a few days and Jo will be 3 months on Christmas day. What sweet granddaughters I have.

Wandi, your granddaughters are absolutely beautiful. If you did nothing but post there pictures every day, I would come back!
I will be praying and hoping that your Christmas will go smoothly and you will be able to enjoy your family. Broken hearts, and broken familys are such a common and sad thing in our Society. You will be on my mind this Christmas time, dear friend.
Love ya!

They are beautiful indeed!

I'm in the outside, so I don't really know how you must be feeling, but I know this... the waiting and anticipating are worse than the actual event itself.

I think you can get by this and carry on with your life much more happy after doing this.

Stop over thinking it.

Chances are, your ex will be as awkward too.

What with these beautiful faces and terrific daughter and son-in-law, you can instead enjoy and make this Christmas a beautiful one to boast.

Enjoy your Christmas!

Make your daughter's hosting a success for her. Next time will be a lot easier and tons more enjoyable.

Till then, have a great weekend.

Oh Wanda, I feel for you. I would not want to be in your shoes at that party. I know it has been a long time since the divorce but it must be so hard to have to have dinner with him and his family. I'll be thinking of you. Don't exactly know why Tiff decided to invite you both. Seems a little odd and a tad inconsiderate. Kids!
