I really think the "It didn't" one is great. Hallmark should definitely take note.


My divorce was/is not as amicable as yours, but I loved the idea that I read about a divorce shower. And luckily, it's a friend's bday on the day that I got my divorce papers so I always remember that day fondly...


Thanks Kimberly, if Hallmark contacts me, will let you know. LOL.

Sorry April your divorce was less "friendly" but sounds like you manage to put it in perspective. I never heard of a divorce shower but like the idea, too.


We're not divorced, but our kids give us reason to pull our hair out. You must have angels for kids. heh heh. Really. Not kidding.


Hey, I pulled my hair out plenty of times too. And then cancer did it for me. LOL. But from here, especially now that they're grown up, my kids ARE angels.


Well, maybe my kids will miraculously turn into angles as soon as they move out of the house. Then I will wish they were back in the house with me again. Or not.


LOL! Re: Not a Hallmark Momement. Though I have seen cards for "congrats on your eye lift", you never see one for some of the more poignant moments in life. Why do we have to mark the occasions just because they are happy ones. The sad ones make us who we are too, don't they. And if we can see a bit of humor in that, isn't that okay?


I love that idea! My ex and I started dating when I was 15, married when I was 20, and divorced when I was 29. We have 2 daughters and 6 grandkids.
I love that man dearly, and he loves me (and tells me so), but we know we are far better friends than man and wife. He is my dearest man friend and to this day (I am 53), I can still tell him pretty much anything.
