It's the holiday season and well that means spending time with family. Well what if you are like me and spending time with your family makes you want to run and hide. If you follow me and social media you know today I met my grandparents for a pre-thanksgiving time together. My grandparents are my world. The have always been my comfort when i need it, they also are my biggest fan and support system. But when it comes to well my parents the story is so different. Growing up holidays were no fun they were spent here and there and never as a whole family. My mom would take me and my brother to her mothers, but my dad would never go so what was the point of family time. After going to my mom's mom house we would then go to my dad's side of the family. So the days were never all spent together. As I got older and my parents divorced it was still the same thing and deciding where i wanted my time to be spent and it never plays out how you want it to. You have to make sure you have equal time spent with both, but when the driving is involved and you never know if things will goes as planed and you might spend more time with one then the other. Then when my dad got remarried that put the tension between us. Growing up I was daddy's little princess and I felt like it would always be that way. But it turns out that fairytale thought i had was more like a nightmare. Daddy's little princess was no longer the main woman he had in his life, between broken promises and the heartbreak being around my dad is painful. Then when it comes to my mom's side of the family I'm the outcast of the family because I'm not a "country girl" to them I'm a city snob who is ungrateful an spoiled. Being around people who feel that way about you just makes you unhappy. So last Thanksgiving was spent with the most amazing guy in the world along with his family. They really do make the holidays feel like family time. I am glad that I finally found someone and somewhere to make every void that I had growing up feel almost complete. Being around people who put all their differences aside an enjoy the company from everyone around.
I hope all of you have a Great Thanksgiving and Enjoy all the family time!
