I’m not feeling great but there’s no use trying to cheer me up, I am allowing myself to feel a bit sad and to process everything. Today I had my dad, mom, stepmom, stepdad, younger sister Julia and my two younger siblings (13 and 11 years old) over for a visit. The only one missing is my younger brother Daniel (26 years old). It’s been many years since the whole gang gathered. It was a lovely day and fun for my kids to hang out with grandma and grandpa at the same time. A few years ago I never thought this would happen. Each time I meet my dad I feel the pain from missing him and love. We’re so alike.
We were hanging out by the pier today, it’s important to me to get out (with company) and not feel like I’m shut inside because of fear.
I hope you’ve had a good Saturday.
