On the day we told them we would no longer be married, we assured them that we would always remain connected as a family and be there for them in every way possible.
Could we sit together at a school play?
Yes, we could do this for our kids. Although we did not start this way—
During one of our first post-divorce experiences, we attended a school performance and did not sit together. With an anguished heart, I watched my eldest daughter as she looked back and forth between her Father and myself during the performance. Instead of enjoying her performance, she was struggling to manage her actions from the impossible position we'd inadvertently put her in; feeling torn between her parents.
When they look back at this time, I hope they feel all the love, acceptance and magic we shared as a family.

I love the genuine connections that music inspires. Music answers everything for me; it bestows clarity, channels my inspiration, restores my balance. At home, I often proclaim, "OH, I LOVE this song turn it up!" My kids point out, " You say that about every song, Mom."
Ok, I do love every song! Here's a playlist with a selection of songs I adore. Enjoy the music!
