Sea Grass

Life moves on in mysterious ways.

My Blog entry for September 21, 2009-

"It's a special day for me. I meet a part of my life that I've never seen. She's a part of my past, a part of my 'today' and surely part of my future. Nine years ago, my brother and sisters learned we had a half-sister. Simply put-- today, we'll all be together at last. I'm excited!"

It was a wonderful evening. I spent most of the night just staring at Diane. I also met her middle daughter, Julie. Today, Diane returns. This time she'll be accompanied by her oldest daughter, Elizabeth. Comparatively speaking, my side of the family is quite small, so my son J- is really excited to meet another new cousin. We just never know where the next turn in this life will take us. I thought I knew who I was... I just didn't know all the pieces of my puzzle weren't on the table yet.

  4. Congratulations. I, too, have a small family and would love to learn of another relative! Glad this is such a happy ending.

    On another note, thank you for visiting GDP lately. Love your comments. However, when I click on 'birdman,' the link to port daily photo does not connect. Makes it harder to comment back. I had to remember you were port city daily photo and google you.
