My family has had the most wonderful Christmas ever: All the kids and me and my ex and a few other extended family together, clean, and all getting along. I’m so amazed and thankful!
I have a few photos that I would love to post. And I’ve appreciated seeing photos that some of you have added to your blogs of your families. But I can’t bring myself to post pics of my kids. I know that many of the friends of my boys ended up as addicts as well, and I don’t want to expose my boys’ identities on the off chance that someone out there would recognize them and then read all the stories I’ve told about them.
I know the chance of this is low, but I guess I’ll stick with it for now. So instead, just imagine it in your own mind: me the mom, my ex-husband, my two boys, my daughter, one girlfriend, my grandmother, aunt and cousin, all smiling and being silly for the camera in front of the Christmas tree.
It’s a pretty picture. I promise. Smiles and love to all.
