Disclaimer: I am not in any way promoting divorce. My husband is stuck with me forever. I mean, literally. He better put up his feet, because he’s got quite a while to go here. Three years down, a million more to go. And if you asked him, he’d tell you that the past three years have seemed like a million. In a good way of course.
While I typically get gracious compliments from my husband about my craft projects, he thought that this one was a little questionable. I think he just wanted to make sure I didn’t plan on leaving him anytime soon. I mean, who would cook his dinners if I did? But I assured him the project was just because I recently had a co-worker start the process of the big D. And by big D, I mean divorce. If your mind went somewhere else, we could probably be friends.
I never like to see anyone going through a hard time. And while my particular co-worker was the instigator in this life change, it’s still not an easy thing to go through. I could have made her another sunshine basket, but most of my friends are pretty sick of those at this point. So on to something bigger and brighter. I put together a Divorce Basket for her. Anything to brighten spirits over here. And note to self: When “brightening spirits” be sure to use lots of actual spirits. You know the kind. They’re served in bars and restaurants.
While my co-worker might be saying goodbye to one person in her life, she’s definitely gonna have to keep me. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
If you are unlucky enough to know someone going through a divorce, you can print these tags and make your own divorce basket to cheer them up.
