More than polite dinner conversation
Monday, October 14, 2013
I'm feeling pretty emotionally vulnerable today, but in a good way. DH and I went out for supper with my brother and SIL last night. At the table, my brother and I had the best conversation of our lives (I know that this sounds sort of Pollyanna-ish, but I'm not exaggerating here). We had a real conversation about how we grew up, how our difficult mother made huge impacts on each of us, how we (including our dad) were pushed apart by her needs (and manipulations)...(well I can't say enough about how important this conversation was, you'll just have to believe me).
I'm more anxious than usual this AM, but I'm emotionally secure enough to know that I'm processing a lot of important information and "baggage". I'm feeling hopeful and lucky and trusted and LOVED. Like a small breakthrough has occurred. Whew.
Sending this out to the community as a way to remind us all that surprising, wonderful things can happen any day! I wish for us all love and kindness to each other and ourselves.
