Sigh. here we go. Is it unavoidable or not so much? My son just got here from out of town for the holidays and my ex (grrrr) only brought him in for a week. In Canada only a week to fly from one province to another in the winter is nuts, snowstorms make the cancellation and delay situation almost a certainty thus reducing my son's time here with his friends and family. Anywho, a tug is beginning for my son's attention and as much as I am trying to be understanding my ex pays no attention to the fact that I am not well and need advance notice and is making it more difficult than need be. Again I am trying to just breathe and allow my son to have a happy holiday but I want to see him too, God only knows when he will be back again and who knows how I will be, physcially, in the future either. Divorce, illness and the Holidays, sigh, Ho, ho, ho, sheeesh. Anyone feeling the same tugs out there?
I really liked Terato (Rick's) post the other day though on another thread when he said that he has used his experiences with cancer to not expect as much from people anymore and be a little more understanding. I think those points go a long way but I'm not perfect and ignoring my health situation during the holidays hurts my feelings. Oh maybe I am just a big baby. Sigh.
