A great day of healing

Thursday, March 28, 2013

I am SO excited that my (step) daughter and 2 grandkids are here.
Today we drove to the coast and spent the day walking on the beach, climbing over rocks, and lots and lots of talking. It's the first time we've actually been able to talk since her dad passed away (committed suicide after leaving me for my former best friend after 20 years of marriage). (I raised her from the time she was 7 and we've always had a great relationship.)

A lot of water has passed under and over those bridges and it is wonderful to be able to reconnect with her, and my grandson, and get to know the granddaughter I've never had a chance to know. We had opportunity to say a lot of things that needed to be said. I got to spend time with her daughter (7 years old) and son (18) . . . and I feel like I have been reunited with family that was taken away from me.

She has done such a wonderful job of raising her kids and breaking the cycle of insanity established by both her dad and birth mother.

My heart is so happy.
