heard this song on the radio yesterday.

it's by everclear (who don't seem to have a website, i don't think they're together anymore...) anyway, the point is, that no matter how much i like that my parents are happy, the fact that they get along and are friends and everything (which i appreciate), no matter how much i love brent and trish, it will never erase the fact that i wish it hadn't happened in the first place.

divorce sucks no matter how old you are. and just because everyone is happy, doesn't make it suck any less.

(excellent grammar i know, oh well.)


I love that song - it plays in heavy rotation on my iPod. It brings me back to my own childhood and it also reinforces why I love doing youth ministry. I want my kids to know they can feel safe when they walk through those church doors (or my house or wherever we are) - that's what youth group was for me anyway.

I totally hear what you're saying, Kate. As much as my parents' divorce defined who I am today and made me a stronger person for it, as much as my parents needed to break for their own mental health, as better off as my family was for the divorce .... there will always be that part of me that wishes it never happened at all.

interesting - i was surprised myself recently when the fleeting thought of, "I wish they never got divorced" floated in my head. Of course it was for the best, blah blah yada yada,... but still...

My parents are quite possibly on their way to divorcing. Even though I am 27 now, and honestly if they do it will probably be better for both of them--deep inside, I still just wish they could be happy together, instead. I really do want everything to be the way it used to be.
