What happens when you try to be nice after divorce

this is what I get for being nice!

I try to be nice after divorce. I emailed my ex-husband this nice, inspirational story as well as my mom, dad, and sister. I figure “You know what Kim, this is the man you chose to be the father of your children, you were nice to him for 17 years, you can try to be nice to him after the divorce.”

Here’s a snippet of what I sent him:

“Have a Wonderful Day. May God Bless You Always and don’t forget that when you “cast your bread upon the waters,” you never know how it will be returned to you..

God is so big He can cover the whole world with his Love and so small He can curl up inside your heart..

When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go.
Only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He’ll catch you when you fall, or He’ll teach you how to fly!

Have a blessed day and remember to be a blessing… “

Nice of me, huh? This is the reply I got from my ex-husband, who I have known since we were 17, together for 12 years, married for 7, and the father of my two beautiful boys:

Don’t use my email for this crap! If you have something to say about the boys than I’ll tolerate it…otherwise don’t email me we’re not friends.

Guess I should’ve seen that coming. Can you say “bitter?” Wonder what he’ll say when he gets the positive affirmation quote I sent him today?! I wonder if you can really kill someone with kindness? Guess it won’t hurt to try!
