Taking a Chance
I haven't acted on it yet, but I'm thinking about how to broach the subject. It's all in the wording, you know. What to say. What not to say. How to say and not say what I really mean.
I want to invite my daughter and her son to visit. But I don't want to scare them away. I don't want to push too hard. And I definitely don't want to freak anyone out.
But it would be fun to have them here for a couple of days and hang out by the pool. Our kids could play together and we could visit. Catch up. Get to know each other better. Or again.
But I don't want her to feel pressured to say yes if she doesn't want to. If she's not ready.
At this point I have nothing to lose. I know about her life but I'm not part of it. I am her friend on facebook but not in real life. I've seen pictures of her family but have never met most of them.
So really, what's to lose?
I'll keep you posted.
