Tomorrow is the day that my siblings have decided to get together. Being from a large family, there were bound to be cases of one not getting along with the other yet some of these cases have gone on for years. So at the prodding of the youngest child, the rest so far have said that they will be there.
We’ve made it for the afternoon so that we can all have an excuse to leave early for work the next day. A long drive for myself so that will be what I say as I need to leave. Two of my sisters are the main two that are not talking as one of those two and another are in a separate situation. So with children and grandchildren in the same room, it’s with high hopes that I pray everyone keeps their manners on top.
My mother passed away almost 12 years go, it will be 12 years come Christmas time. After she passed; I had asked that we all stay close and get together. Who knows what magic the youngest holds as everyone finally jumped on the bandwagon this time. Maybe some of that magic will show itself tomorrow and we will have an amazing day.
Everyone is older now but not necessarily wiser from the age. Seeing them not get along truly breaks my heart because I know it’s just something small when it comes to a loved one. I don’t agree with what everyone does or says, but I know that it’s not worth having them leave my life over it. Life is the only truly valuable thing that we as human beings have and yet we play with it or dismiss it like it’s forever.
Even if some of them refuse to let their guard down tomorrow and truly enjoy themselves, I will. Maybe tomorrow will have magic in it and everyone will relax and enjoy. Fingers crossed!
