I'll never forget taking my boys to Disneyland as a single mom about a year after my divorce. While it was exciting prepping for trip, my heart was also heavy. David (my ex) and I had honeymooned in Disneyland and always dreamed of our first trip there as a family with our kids. We no longer had that family, and I mourned the loss. We even talked (and cried a little) about it the night before the boys and I left as they were saying goodbye to their dad. It was very hard to look forward at that point instead of looking back, but I knew I had to.
