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.
