It will, however, make for a turbulent holiday season. No mother wants to see her child in pain, or see the negative effects of a vindictive, short-sighted parent on her own child. I can do nothing to prevent the pain, can only sit on the sidelines and watch it unfold. It’s an uncomfortable, absolutely awful place to be. But we will all survive. Hopefully with no lasting harm done.
I had planned to blog today on the healing power of gratitude.
Instead, I’ll postpone that blog until January, and simply wish each of you a happy and peaceful holiday.
See you on the far side of the storm.
In the meantime…be kind to each other. That’s what this season is all about.
