Mom Pens Refreshing Post On Why She's Grateful For Her Ex

As a child of divorced parents, it definitely warms my heart when I see separated couples visibly trying to maintain peace and civility for the sake of their children.

In the midst of conflict, resentment, lost love and all the other awfulness that comes with a divorce, it really can be so easy to forget what's best for the kids.

Thankfully, Jessica Singleton and her ex have not allowed themselves to push aside the importance of mutually sharing and taking care of their son.

In a viral Facebook post — with hundreds of thousands likes and shares — Jessica praises her ex, Jon Megason, for always striving to be an amazing father and team player when it comes to communicating with her one on one.

She wrote,


I suppose one could argue these are all things a father should do for his son, regardless of the relationship with the child's mother.

However, it's what Jon is both willing and happy to do for Jessica — outside of parenting their son — that is truly amazing.

She continued,

Not only is he there for her in her times of need, but he doesn't appear to hold any kind of grudge or resentment toward Jessica for dating someone new.


Really, Jessica's message to Jon is quite simple: She's thankful for him.

She finished the post,


Jessica's relationship with her ex really does show that just because two people don't love each other anymore (romantically, at least), it doesn't mean the more important values, like respect and family, fly right out the window.

If anything, those values, in their most fragile of states during a divorce, only become more cherished and more important.
