Divorce & Valentines Day

Divorce & Valentines Day
Being open to all kinds of love this week

The miracle was that I no longer felt isolated and depressed. Instead, I felt connected and loved. I also bought myself a small present from me to me. It varied from year to year—a new lipstick, a tiny box of good chocolates, a new pen, a piece of costume jewelry, a knitting project. Although ‘from me to me” may sound corny, I felt empowered by taking care of myself.

Today I am happily remarried. My children are grown and I will again go out to dinner on Valentines Day with a partner. I am grateful for my husband and our relationship. I am also grateful and transformed by becoming conscious of giving and receiving the variety of loves in my life. I am richer  and stronger for that awareness.

Wishing you a very happy and loving Valentines Day!
