This year the whole family gathered at their mother's house for Christmas Eve this year and it is a joy to watch my children banter back and forth telling stories on themselves and doting on their new niece. It thrills my heart to see such a strong connection between the three of them as they chatted away the time.
We had a great meal and time spent with the children and grandchildren. Three years ago I would have never even thought of a gathering with my children. My oldest son has extended an invitation for us to join them at their Uncle's house on the lake in South Carolina; will have to see if that pans out.
But to everyone who reads this blog believe that there is a sliver of a chance that things can and must might work out for everyone. Happy Holidays and a New Year from "The Two Auntees"
