As my daughters became adults, I realized that the time we shared together would become less and less. Trying to think of some way to keep us from drifting apart, I felt that each year it would be nice for the three of us to do something special together. For a time that worked, but along came husbands and then children and our excursions came to a halt. Fortunately, all of us ended up living in Houston making it possible to gather for family dinners and special occasions. And when the hubby and I began spending time in Maine, they were a part of that, too.
Now, that is about to change as one daughter and her family are moving, and all of the family’s emotions are running wild! I can hardly bear the thought of her and her hubby not being close and thinking about their girls not being available for whatever adventure we dream up brings me to my knees. What makes me really sad though is knowing my two girls will be in separate places.
Only a year separates them, but there has never been a moment’s competition or jealousy between them. They are able to say things to each other that no one else could. Thinking about all this, I wanted one last time for the three of us before everything changed. What to do at the last minute that would be close and something we’d all enjoy?
