Yesterday was a good day. In honor of my granddaughter’s birthday, all of us, including my D-I-L who came up for the event, got together for the festivities and a pleasant reunion. We rose above any differences or unease we might be feeling to convey a sense of security and solidarity to the kids on this special occasion. I believe that goal was accomplished above and beyond appearances. We had a very enjoyable visit far into the evening.
It made me feel sad in a way, that we couldn’t somehow magically revert to being a family again, even with all our human issues. But life must move on, just in a new iteration. I’ll take what I can get.
Here are some flowers, in sun and by moon, at our place and theirs.
And of course some partying, and first roller skate steps.
