Happy Birthday to all those who were born today! I'm hesitant to say I'm "cautiously optimistic", because it seems life likes to kick-you-when-you're-down, but I am 35 today and so glad I've made it through the last few weeks. They have been tremendously difficult-- and not because of vanity or self-loathing reasons, but for reasons that would be related to the personal difficulties I've had with the divorce . Two VERY different things! But, I made it and am slowly moving forward. I seem to be more hopeful about the future, even if only on a small scale. But atleast I'm not in that "dark place"-- like I was Thanksgiving Week. I'm glad I atleast logged on to LF and vented some--I hate to think of the alternative... So: HAPPY 35th BIRTHDAY, TRUE!

Happy Birthday True, I hope you continue to move forward, it's a tough road, but one that is usually necessary. Keep your chin up and when you just can't seem to pick it up any longer, turn to those who care about you to lend a hand, shoulder, ear or whatever you need. Best wishes and again, cheers to being 35 and a better year for you and your boys!!

Hi True Going through a divorce is very difficult - I've been taking a "Divorce Care" class - if you can find one in your area, I would really recommend it. It has helped me tremendously. Try doing an internet search - they might post local meetings. I know their site is divorcecare dot org One of the things it has done, has been to put words to feelings that I've had, that I couldn't find a way to express before. The pain was just too big - too great. Finding those words - and discovering that that pain was "normal" - was very healing for me. I was so thankful to discover that it wasn't me after all. And also having a safe place to talk things through - really helped too. I wish you all the best. In case you didn't get my note on your other post - you do look great in your Christmas family picture. *smile*. Red really is your colour. And your dress is beautiful. Your boys are all handsome fellows too. Happy Birthday! Celebrate - this is your year... It really is a new beginning. It is time for you to dream new dreams, and look forward to a life of new adventures to come. Blessings, Contented

Hey True! A happiest of birthdays! Glad that there are some bright spots in what is otherwise a difficult time. Speaking of bright spots: I love yer holiday picture. Your boys look like they can be quite a handful, in a fun way! Amy

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR TRUE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!! LOVE the pic. You look sooooo beautiful. And what great kids. I'm glad you are stepping out of the dark place. Divorce can be so painful, even when it is you who needed to end the marriage...
