The first stage is Denial. We deny our loss. We refuse to accept it. When Mom died, my sister and I cognitively acknowledged that Mom was no longer with us yet on an unconscious level we were denying it like crazy! Take the Christmas Stocking Caper for example. I found an incredibly good buy on velour christmas stockings. They were much cheaper than I could make them so I bought one for each of us. At home, taking the stockings out of the shopping bag, I discovered I had bought ooe too many. My sister did the same thing. She bought 1 extra gift. For me the way to work through this was to accept that I was grieving. This was a normal part of the grieving process. We talked and laughed about the ‘silly’ things we did. And got passed that stage. Sort of. Almost. One day.

Shot Girl by Karen E. Olson (Signet $6.99). This is the fourth and final installment in the Annie Seymour series, set in and around New Haven. Annie, the police reporter for the fictitious New Haven Herald, loses her beat when she finds herself a suspect in the shooting death of her ex-husband. Olson is a masterful writer, and makes Annie an unreliable narrator in Shot Girl, which leaves the reader questioning the truth of what she chooses to say. Or not say. While that can be a bit of a risk, Karen pulls it off beautifully, bringing her trademark humor and behind-the-scenes knowledge to a story that brings the series to a close on its highest note yet. And that’s saying a lot!

Dr. Rick Hanson PH.D says that about 90% of what enables divorced parents to work well together is exactly what enables married parents to work well together, including personal well-being, insight into oneself, emotional openness, civility, empathy, goodwill, clarity about the values and principles that guide parenting practices, and skill at negotiating practical arrangements. The other 10% has to do with things like keeping one’s feelings about the divorce compartmentalised away from the business of co-parenting, working out the details of money, custody, vacations, grandparents and integrating new friends/lovers/mates. Employing the services of a Life Coach can make this a lot easier.

In all marriages, you would expect to experience conflicts and misunderstanding from time to time but avoid conflicts that could make the relationship disposable. Discuss problems gently and without blame. Keep communication lines open and discuss matters with maturity and compassion. Focus on the brighter side since a happy marriage needs to have a rich deposit of positivity. Remember, love is an important spice of your relationship, love is what keeps couples together during the hard times; love is something that you do, it should be a behaviour to show that you care, love beyond the words. A triumphant and blissful marriage requires falling in love daily with the same person. Your partner.
