25 Gifts of Christmas – Day 7

I’d love to see your “whimsy” photos (from yesterday) … send them to me at theblendedfamilymom@gmail.com!!

Here’s today’s gift:
Let’s get real! This blended family thing is tough – especially when you are dealing fairly often with your hubby’s ex! Or … what if you are the ex?!?!
The gift I’d like to share with you today is compassion.Take this gift and do something bold and courageous! Yep, write a letter or send an email to the step-mom to your kids or to your husband’s ex.You don’t have to express an undying devotion to this woman – just acknowledge how difficult your family dynamics are and that you appreciate and respect her role in this new dynamic. Don’t expect anything in return and don’t be upset if you get an ‘earful’ from her if she is not very receptive to your act of kindness. Just know that you received a gift and then you passed it on!
Merry Christmas!
