Last week I posted about my hopes for my daughter to make an appearance at our big family reunion. She did not make it, but apparently would have if the reunion had been one day longer. She contacted my sister a few hours after we all LEFT Oceanside, wanting to meet up. In the end, she went to my sister's house and visited there for over FOUR HOURS. She had not seen my sister's 5 year old since that child was a baby, and had never met my sister's younger children (age 3 and age 1 now). SO, it was a step in the right direction, right?
I have invited her to Bobblehead's birthday party next month - she still has not met her baby brother! I don't expect her to be all buddy-buddy with me, but if she will just SHOW UP - will just begin to repair her relationship with some other family members, well then I won't feel so silly about getting my hopes up last week.
This week's song is not really ABOUT that, but the title works with it: Come Together, by The Beatles. My daughter actually LOVED the Beatles when she was little, so I am dedicating this song to her this week.
