Quote of the Week

If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever. (Pooh Bear)

We are scattered this week for March break.

Gabe, Zandra and Sam are in San Francisco with their Mom.

Zach and Josh are in Italy (and then heading to France and Spain – they are gone on an extended March break with their Dad – so jealous!)

Rob and I are in Utah with some family and friends, and doing a little skiing in Park City too.

Everyone always says things to us like, “Oh, I could never be without my kids for that long.” It always makes me laugh, because, when you are divorced, you have NO choice. It’s not that we CHOOSE to be without them for extended time, on many holidays, or on certain times of the week, it’s simply a reality that we have to deal with.

But we take advantage of the fact that time alone, in a marriage, is very, very special and while we miss our kids a lot, this time together makes our family stronger all around.

Our kids are in our hearts and we are in theirs. We have our dreams, we have our the moon and the stars in the night sky, and we have Google chat and FaceTime!

Miss you guys and love you more!

  1. GOOD FOR YOU TWO!!!!! I think it truly is necessary to feed your marriage… and you two do a remarkable job of it!!

    πŸ™‚ It sounds to me, like the perfect break for all. Exciting experiences for the kids, and needed time for you two.

  2. You have to love comments like that! It’s GOOD to be away from your kids – and for them to be away from you πŸ™‚ Sounds like everyone is having some much needed adventure time. Just think of when you’re reunited!! Love this quote, as I usually do. Enjoy the skiing!

  3. What a great quote!!!
    I don’t understand why people say so much of what they say – it seems like if they thought about it for half a second they would keep thoughts right where they belong!!!
    Glad you get a little special time with your husband. I know you will be so happy to have all your kiddos home again after their fun travels!
