Some wishes never come true

Colby said, "You know what I wish Mom?"
Me:"What son?"
Colby: "I wish you and dad lived in the same house again."
Me: (smile falling from my face) "That's never gonna happen."

I'm just realizing that my son is the same age I was when my parents divorced.
I remember having a similiar conversation with my mom...already knowing that was never going to happen.
I remember many feelings I felt around those times and conversations imprinted forever on my mind.
I remember being torn between wanting to love both parents, but not wanting to dishearten either parent because I had love for the other.

...I don't want my son to feel torn.

  1. He's so fortunate that you understand how he feels. That you can connect with what he's going through. He's very lucky to experience that kind of love.
