Always About Family!
Family is so important, especially to me because I have so much of it! Millions of people believe that a child with divorced parents is a “broken family”. This doesn’t necessarily have to be true, especially for your kids sake! My parents got divorced when I was very little, but everyone in my family instilled family values deep in my core. My parents have come a long way to keep these values instilled in me, and I know it’s not for their total benefit. I know my parents have sacrificed their own opinions of one another for my experiences and benefit. It wasn’t all peaches and cream at the beginning, neither is it perfect now. I mean they got divorced for a reason! They have some what of a friendship which makes it easier for me.
I can remember when my little sister Emme was born my mom was so excited and as Emme got older my mom offered to babysit. We went to Elitches, an amusement park, and Emme called my mom, “mommy” because I was. We didn’t know what she could call my mom but we knew it couldn’t be mommy, so we decided on “Auntie”. Whenever we do something my siblings are always invited. To my cousins, on my mom’s sides, birthdays, to holiday events, weekend activities, and trips! Every one always finds it extremely odd that my mom has my dad’s kids, but I think it’s Fantastic! I love that my siblings are involved with everything!
“The great danger for family life, in the midst of any society whose idols are pleasure, comfort and independence, lies in the fact that people close their hearts and become selfish.”– Pope John Paul II
Even though I didn’t have a horrifying experience like some people do with divorced parents, divorce is never an option for me. I never want my kids to spend their adulthood recovering from their childhood for any reason. I love my parents very much and am thankful for all they do for me, but the question that always resurfaces my mind is “What would have been different in my life if my parents never got divorced?” I guess I wouldn’t have been the person I am today and I kind of like me:)
