    Hello, DSG friends! :-) I want to pass on resources that may be helpful to any of us as we maneuver through our journeys... I just heard of an incredible book called "When Your I Do Becomes I Don't". This radio interview hit on different points that I heard discussed at Group and within other discussions. The podcast is available on www.midday connection.org. If it benefits just one of us, it was worth the post! :-)

      Thanks Heather!. I will check this out. I have just also read a very good one called "Getting Past your Breakup: How to turn a devastating loss into the best thing that ever happened to you". By Susan Elliot. She has great exercises in here to do, that helps bring closure to oneself and to move on.

      Thank you, Nancy! I will look into reading that, too! I had several good books from separation on, from my first divorce, but I was hopeful that I wouldn't need them again... sigh! :-)

    I am just throwing this out there, but wondered if any of the group would want to start a new tradition on Xmas eve and go to dinner and maybe go caroling or to a nursing home to see people without families? Or just dinner. Xmas eve is the time I would have spent with my inlaws, so just looking for a new tradition to start. So if anyone else is alone on Xmas eve and would want to do something, let me know!

    Thanks again everyone for the support. Sorry to blubber so much. I haven't done that since my first meeting back in Oct. 2012. It's friends like you... along with family... that will see me through this no matter what the final outcome is. I feel truly blessed to have you all in my corner. Here's wishing you all and happy, healthy and joyful holiday season!

      I hope you enjoyed the meeting and felt welcome. New people are always, always welcome. Many of us know each other because the group is so wonderful and caring that we keep coming back, even years after our divorce is final.

    I wish I was unable to attend last night. Work has been hectic. I just found out Christmas dinner will just be four of us. That hurts me a lot simply based on how many gathered at my former spouses, having dinner with friends extended families the previous two years. I know all of my family doea different things that day, but I am sad.

      December 18, 2013

    • Lisa C

      Brendan, believe me, we all know what you are feeling. Many of us including myself have lost lots of friends, family and traditions, which is as difficult as losing a spouse. In our group we talk a lot about focusing our minds on the present, because that's all we have. Funny you mentioned stockings. I didn't hang any this year because I didn't want the glaring reminder for the kids that there's one fewer this year.

      Thanks Heather, the same back atcha. These new normals are very difficult to navigate at the Holidays. It's hard when the dynamic between people you have loved and cared for has to change up. Especially at the Holidays. It's very sad this year.

      December 18, 2013

    John, were all pulling for you . So many, many prayers going out to you also.Please try to stay strong and don't look so far ahead.

    I want to thank everyone for just being there last night. I have been feeling depressed over my boys and all the crap that has been going on with them. I just got to get out of the house and out of myself. It was fun after too.

    Jenny, thank you for putting into words what I've been feeling about dating - I'm just not ready for the risk.

      It was great to meet and talk with you, Petra! You gave me some great insight about how to leave matters with my now-former stepsons. I really miss being their Mom, and am saddened how their Dad negatively affected our relationships due to his own brokenness. Praying for you as you work through your challenges, too! Your boys definitely know how much you love them. When dating again is right for you, you'll know! No rushing into it is necessary, and so super smart of you! :-) :-)
