While this picture shows me smiling and festive at the annual St. Patrick’s parade, the truth is that I felt like I’d been hit with a ton of bricks. This was the first St. Patrick’s Day parade I had been to without my older kids from my first marriage. I’ve taken them to this parade every year since they were babies. While they were still there with their dad (but not me), it totally sucked not being with them.
That’s one of the saddest things about divorce – things can really hit you out of nowhere. Small things that you wouldn’t think would bother you do, while at the same time, big things like not having them with me on Christmas morning can sometimes feel okay. Divorce is just… weird that way. It can make you feel alone even with thousands of people around you.
