Hallmark Moment

I felt so sad at my Ex FIL's wake. I stood at his side and had my hand on his casket. My Ex walked up and laid his hand on top on mine. For a brief moment, all the memories (well, the good ones) of when we were married overwhelmed me and I felt a bit sick. At that moment his Dear Wife came over and stood beside him also and put his other hand over hers. I could not help but think of other people seeing us standing there, the three of us, Ex wife on one side, Ex Husband in middle, and Wife on other side, all holding hands as if we were holding on together. The stories that can be made in one's mind when the reality is nothing like what the view looks like.

Yeah, would look awkward to on lookers.

Being divorced sometimes puts you into uncomfortable situations.

Try not to let it rent space in your head.
