Building a Better World! One Person at a Time!
The little quilt for my husband's ex-wife is coming right along. I have gotten a lot of raised eyebrows over the fact I am doing this for her. We have had a lot of problems with her over the years. I think a lot of the problems stemmed from the fact that she let such a good man get away. He and I have had a wonderful marriage for now onto 32 years, and I am sure that is hard. Watching your ex, day after day, getting along so well,living a wonderful life, that could have been yours.She chose otherwise.Nevertheless, she has to be part of our extended family, since she is the mother of his 2 daughters, and the grandmother of their 2 grandchildren.We have buried our differences, for the most part, at least I have. I don't hold on to past hurt feelings like a lot of folks do. I try to work through it, the best I can, and go on with life. Life is too short to dwell on those kinds of negative things. I choose to fill my days with things that cheer me up and bring me joy.I am enjoying making the little quilt. I only hope she is sincere in liking and appreciating it when it is finished.That is why I feel that ,hopefully,I am building a better world, one person at a time.
