The first time my husband came to pick up our daughter, he spied all those yellow ribbons on the porch. When my daughter got in the car he said, "Tell your mom to take those down." He thought I had put up those ribbons because I was waiting for HIM to come home!
For months after that, every time we saw a yellow ribbon we would laugh and one of us would say, "Wow, those people miss your (my) dad!" It always cracked us up.
I am sure someone is horrified that we laughed about this. But there are so many things you cry about in a divorce that at some point...you just gotta laugh!
Please be praying for the divorce recovery group I am a part. For the old wounds, the fresh wounds, the lost dreams, and the broken hearts. Thank you!
