Happy Birthday Dad!!

My dad turned 60 today. I love him over the top!! He and my mom went on a romantic weekend getaway. They deserve it too.

Ten years ago today my divorce was finalized from my ex-husband. It was one of the best birthday gifts I think my dad ever received. He loathed my ex.

Divorce may be frowned upon by certain groups of people. But, for me, it was one of the greatest decisions I made in my life. It turned everything completely around for me. If I hadn’t made that decision to leave I would not be a Christian, I would not have a good relationship with my family, I would not have the wonderful friends that I now have, I would not have my awesome husband, and I would not have these beautiful children.

So happy 60 and happy 10.
