Another Bomb Drop

It’s taken me three months or so to get to the point where I was ready to tell you, but it’s time.

My daughter is getting divorced.

She called me in October right before their first year anniversary, and told me the news. I never saw it coming; nobody did.

I got off the phone and just bawled, and I cried myself to sleep for days on end.

She was the child I thought I no longer had to worry about.

This is not how things were supposed to go.

But this is the way that things went, and life will go on.

It always does.


And I’ll always be here for you, baby girl. Always.

I love you.

  1. I”m so sorry :(

  2. Oh I’m so sorry to hear this! All you can do is be there for her to lean on and know she is a big girl and will be okay. You are a great mom. You’ll all be in my prayers.

  3. I’m so sorry that your daughter is having to go through that. I hope that the divorce goes as well as it can and everyone comes out unscathed.

  4. Aww I know, as a mom, it is so hard to see her hurt. She is so lucky to have you and she will make it through everything. Prayers.

  5. Oh, I’m so sorry for your daughter and you, Liz. That has to be so very hard for all of you.

  6. Oh, Liz. Many, many, many hugs for you both.

  7. And that’s all you can do… That’s what good moms do and you are apparently one of them… I”m so sorry for her divorce.

  8. I’m so sorry to hear that! I was reading a recent post of yours and noticed that you mentioned her ‘ex’. I thought, “Huh? Didn’t she just get married?” I’m sure the decision was not reached easily and I hope that she’ll be able to love again.
