Better Today...Follow-up from Rant yesterday!

OK...I'm feeling kind of stupid now. I jumped to the wrong conclusions about thinking my kids knew something they weren't sharing with me. S-O-R-R-Y!
My youngest son said he knew nothing of the marriage of my ex until reading my mother's letter BUT he did bring up an interesting point...why is HE calling MY mother in the first place? My daughter's comment, "I thought you knew," simply meant she thought I probably knew, she didn't know either and the other son hasn't heard anything. But I did hear a few interesting facts about my ex in the process which has me slightly rattled, like THAT's something new?
But I'm taking a lesson away from this whole event. I DO trust my kids and I feel more confident that the relationship I had worked on all these years HAS paid off. More important...I CAN'T control what all these other nit-wits are "up to" so I'm done trying. I know this lifetime's lesson is patience so I must put down my head and practice it more and more. Just trying to keep up with my own life is difficult...I REFUSE to get caught up in everyone elses!
PS...I'm still looking for a good publisher or editor if anyone out there has any connections they can throw my way. On my 6th rewrite and about to put it down for good which means, it's time to have an editor who can tweak things. Without sounding pompous...I think it's a great read, hope you all get the chance to!
