As I was writing my last post it reminded me of how I used to feel years ago when my girls were younger. Do you remember when your kids were all under 5 years old and you were divorced and didn’t know how you were going to make it through the day? And maybe you …

Something happened the other night that hasn’t happened in a long time. Every time I drop my girls off I immediately miss them. And I am one of the lucky ones that doesn’t have a court ordered schedule which means that I can see them whenever I want. So I get to see them at …

In life there are certain things that you just cannot prepare for. Unfortunately, many of those things come from divorce.
