Something I overheard the other day still has my head spinning. While visiting my son, he and his friends were talking about the holidays. He was joking with one friend how when the friend and his siblings get together there is a lot of complaining and reminiscing about their difficult childhood. To say the least holidays are not fun... The friend retorted saying... "Hey just because you had such a happy childhood".... I thought it was a joke.. but it wasn't. I went into the other room and sat down. I couldn't believe my ears. Someone razzing my kid because he had a HAPPY childhood. After all we'd been through, all the struggles, all the going with out, all the divided holidays. All the times I bit my tongue and didn't say mean hurtful things about the divorce. My kid thinks he had a happy childhood. Now that is redemption.
