Exwh I mean.
I was driving in my car today and that song from the Disney Tarzan movie came on - "you'll be in my heart.". The whole thing is about how there will always be a connection even without physically being in each other's lives.
It made me think. I have lots of people in my life who I don't see often, but they will always hold a special place in my heart for one reason or another. Many of these people came running when the world exploded. They talked to me, checked on me and made me laugh. They are not with me in my every day life but I know they are there if I need them and vice versa.
The strangest thing is that my ex husband is not on that list. He holds no place in my heart anymore. I was married to him for fifteen years and we share children, but my heart is totally closed to him. I find that so strange. It won't change though. Nothing will ever change the things he did and said to be sure that I never wanted him as part of my life or heart again.
Strangely, it doesn't make me sad today. It just makes me shake my head.
