My life has been pretty crazy over the last few years since my divorce but I'm finally getting back on the right track. Being a single parent has taught me a lot of things that I really appreciate. Not only have I learned some hard knock lessons along the way but I've also had some great experiences as well...
I've invented a new contraption that allows me to catch dead mice...
I've made a new car purchase all by myself...
I've learned to ask for help. I've learned to not take life so seriously. I've learned to not judge other parents.
I'm so thankful for these experiences but I'm ready to move on.
I miss marriage. I miss having the traditional family unit. I miss asking my husband to slow dance in the kitchen and listening to him tell me about his day after work. I miss giving him the "special plate" because he had a tough day or got a promotion.
I miss waking up next to someone I love....
I miss wearing my wedding ring.
I miss acting stupid about house repairs..
I miss folding down the covers on his side of the bed
I miss putting out his coffee cup in the morning.
I miss being in the passenger's seat and not being in charge every single minute.
I miss going to church and having someone by my side. I miss celebrating anniversaries and finding clever ways to say I love you.
I miss the comfort of knowing someone so well and having them know everything about you...the good the bad and the ugly.
I miss knowing that someone is thinking of me even when we can't see each other...
Life is crazy sometimes and we all experience loneliness in different capacities throughout our lives. I know that someday I will meet Mr. Right (hopefully soon!) but until then
I will hold onto my sense of humor and enjoy learning about the only person that can truly make me happy...me.
