Worth the Wait...

I have been divorced
from my children's father
for almost 5 years...

We have had our ups
and
our downs..
I have shut him out..
he has done the same..
We have NOT been
the perfect divorced couple..

However..
we stuck through it!
Giving each other the benefit
of the doubt!
Both giving second
chances..
Both remembering
that before the divorce
there was love..

And here we are!
Today we sat
and talked about the kids.
It was nice!
It was open!
We are on the same page!
We then talked about a
movie
I have said no too..
he thinks yes!
He waited to ask me..
he did not override me
in his home..
The affect?
a compromise!

It has taken a while
for us to feel safe
with one another..
for us to each trust one another..
beyond the kids!
But, it is happening!

A relationship
being restored!
Not one of romance!
But, respect!
We will forever share
children..
and I hope
we will forever
share this..

I am blessed!
I KNOW this!
IT does not happen
like this for everyone!

But, there were also
many moments along
the way..
that we could have both
made choices
that took life in a different
direction!
It takes 2 to get to this moment!
and it takes choices along
the way!
It took letting go
and moving on.
It took strength
and determination...
and it took FAITH
to know
that it would one day
be what it should!

It took time...
And it was worth it!!

  1. It takes a long time to get over the grief and pain of a divorce but once it happens great things can happen. From my experience at least, there is no better feeling then seeing the smiles on the kids faces as they realise their parents are on the same page.

  2. Letting go and forgiving is the way to be the nicest to yourself as well.
