Life changes quickly. So quickly, that often we don't realize it until after it's done.
I vaguely remember a Tarot card some 5 years ago that warned my current course would alter life as I then knew it. Well, life at that particular time was too full of lawyers and courtrooms, so I welcomed the change.
Five years later, I'm 1400 miles away from the two single most important things in my life… the two things that can make or break my day… my girls.
They opted to stay with their Dad. Nice looking fellow, who could fool even the best into thinking he's an okay guy. He's good company for an evening or two, but not a "long-haul" type of guy. Over time, I have come to realize his real worth was as a sperm donor .
Unforunately, my daughters still have hope that one day they will wake up and he will be that Dad they had hoped he would be along.
I believe in the "what goes around, comes around" concept. That's why the most satisfying interaction with my ex-husband is imaginary.
Besides, I'd rather continue the relationship I started with my daughters the day they were born... the mother-daughter bond that endures.
It bends, may get twisted at times, but never ever breaks.
