I just wanted to wish all Grandparents & Parents who are estranged from their Grandchildren & Children as peaceful Christmas as we can possibly make it .
I have made a card each for my Granddaughters with the poem by AA Milne
If Ever There Is Tomorrow
When We Are Not Together
There is Something You Must REMEMBER
You Are Braver Than You Believe
STRONGER THAN YOU SEEM
And Smarter Than You Think
But The MOST Important Thing Is
EVEN IF WE ARE APART
I’LL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU
Winnie The Pooh
We haven’t seen our Daughter for over a year, since she got divorced ( amicable) we have two beautiful grandchildren who we helped to bring up,
She met her new partner before the divorce, he’s completely taken over her mind and her life.
She has tried to stop us seeing our grandchildren, our ex Son in law try’s to FaceTime when he has them but this causes friction between them, and l wonder what is going through their little minds.
Why doesn’t Nana & Grandad come to see us anymore?
She’s playing mind games and it isn’t healthy for them
I’m wondering if l should cut contact with them completely.
It will break our hearts but I hate what she’s doing to them.
We have always been so close , phoned or text everyday until the new partner moved in, she is now a wealthy women since divorce, met him before divorce through work, he’s a lot younger than her and obviously knew had a wonderful lifestyle.
I love her and she’s my daughter but l cannot forgive the dreadful things she has said and done over the last year.
I have progressive M S , one of the worst things is stress and we have had this in bucket fulls .
I’m not sure how much longer l can go one , lm just about hanging on due to my lovely hubby, we have no other relatives as my only Brother died in November.
Sorry for going on
I just wanted to thank you all for the thread that try’s to keep us all going and to Minty for the messages on the Christmas tree.
Take care of each other through this stressful time.
