Good for you, and from the type of parent I know you are (based on your posts here), good for your daughter.
Thank you so very much for the passage. My Lord and Saviour has been the only source of strength through this time. Well, that, and maybe this country song: When you're going through Hell,
Keep on moving.
Don't slow down.
If you're scared don't show it.
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you're there....

My friend, the next time I'm in San Antonio, the beer is on me. Thank you again for your support, and kind words. I actually cried when I first read them, as they summed up my hopes and dreams....

Thank you. I have not interacted with you on this board as much as I have some others, but your words mean much to me. As far as "ballls of steel" go, it's more of a deal where "it is what it is", and you've just got to deal with it. It ain't fun, but you know, "it is what it is".....

It is a shame when parents use children as tools for manipulation and spite. It happens every day and yours is not an odd situation. It is few and far between when couples split and there is NO foul words, animosity, or anger bubbling between the old couple. I am glad that your ex dropped the case. I was surprised she would waste time and money like that, but good for you.
Yeah, I was suprised, too, but you know what? She's crazy. It happens. Thank you for your heartfelt words.
Dude, you, rjv, and anybody else that wants to join us will drink until we drop the next time I'm in SA. Oh, wait. You're in Singapore. Well, let me know the next time you're in South Texas, and we'll get our drink on...

Thank you, Nate. It has been stressful. The most stressfull time of my life. I can't wait to put this episode behind me, and get on with living life.

Well, I'm not too far from your ol' stomping grounds. Next time you're around these parts, give me a holler, and the alkyhol is on me
