First Christmas After Divorce

First Christmas After Divorce is Probably the Hardest

The holidays are overwhelming enough, but spending it alone without the kids (or even alone WITH the kids) can have a sobering effect.  You’ll probably encounter feelings of sadness and nostalgia.

Christmas Poem by Kelly Chang Rickert

Silent nights turn into silent days
When you’ve got odd years,
and it’s an even Christmas Day

Turn up the music,
Go take a walk,
Call up your odd year friends
and have a Zoom talk

Order Postmates delivery
And give yourself a break
Way from the kitchen,
Red wine and juicy steak

Don’t be too sad,
Enjoy a shopping spree!
You’ve Got odd years
and next year is 2023!

Remember Everyone Will Go Through This

ALL parents (separated or still together) will eventually have to deal with not having the children over the holidays.

All children grow up!

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4
