Holidays for our family was a busy time for us. As divorced grandparents, we are a "modern family", our children are all we care about, and we are madly going from family to family to celebrate with everyone!
I am posting this for those of us Boomers who do have complicated lives. And those in my age group are the first of them. I am on the "fence" of the "old and the new" lifestyles. I still believe in Family, and adore my "merged" family. My only child is divorced, so this requires 2 more "Families" to visit. My grandchildren's mother will always be my Daughter-in-Law. My new Daughter-in Law to be is also loved. Due to their culture, she will soon give birth to my new granddaughter. I love my 2 grandchildren now so much, that I don't know how my heart can hold another.
But that is what I LOVE about my heart. It grows and grows bigger with LOVE. I can't wait for Ara to be born. I will hold her, and love her and as she grows, she will be amazing, like Cailin and Parker.
