Tomorrow is/was mine and my ex husband's wedding anniversary.....would have been married 14 yrs tomorrow. Divorced last year in May.
When I hated him I used to say "How appropriate that I picked the coldest damn day of the year to marry the coldest man in the world."
When I loved him I said "How appropriate....I picked the coziest, happiest and most festive time of the year to marry the man I will always love."
Funny, but now that we're divorced we get along better than we ever had. Had Thanksgiving dinner together with the kids and I'm spending Christmas eve at his house so we can all be together on Christmas morning. No strings attached. And kids are old enough (13 and 15) to understand. This may be our best anniversary yet!
Live and learn I guess....and then you grow up! Sometimes it sucks what you have to go through to grow, but it's all part of it I guess.......
Happy Holidays and Happy first day of winter!
