Nicole Curtis, host of the HGTV series Rehab Addict, has been in the middle of a very public custody battle with her ex, Shane Maguire, over their son, Harper. And though the battle has been acrimonious, to the point where breastfeeding was a key point of contention, Curtis shared with her fans that it’s important to remember the good times as well as the bad.
On Sunday, Curtis posted a heartfelt message on Instagram to accompany a photo of herself and Maguire in happier times. She wrote that after talking with her grandfather, who had a long and loving marriage with her grandmother, she realized she needed to reevaluate her own life. “Love is a gift and never take it for granted, because when you do, sometimes you lose,” she wrote. “The most valuable gift you can give your children is to remind them they came of love and laughter, not hate and $500 an hour attorneys.”

“I sat with my gramps for a long time today. My emotions raw after sitting there with him as he tells me (like I don't know) how much he loved my grandmother and how you don't go through life thinking you would ever be separated from the love of your life. I joke a lot that I have never married because perfect wasn't presented. I think the truth is we all make our lives so messy and disposable these days. In 1945, my gramps wasn't trolling facebook for an old flame :) he was focused on what was right in front of him...a chance at love and he grabbed it (which I'm so thankful for & I know the rest of my family feels the same) love is a gift and never take it for granted because when you do, sometimes you lose. I'm thankful that my friend captured this moment for my little, the most valuable gift you can give your children is to remind them they came of love and laughter ...not hate and $500 an hour attorneys.”
