Skiing is the easy part… (#sol18 Day 30/31)

Family dynamics are the name of the game this week.

Family’s funny, ya know? These fine folks have known me for 38.5 years, and I them. Nobody, not even Mike (who knows all of me), has known me for that long. They’ve seen me at my happiest, they’ve seen me at my saddest, and they’ve seen me grow and learn at every step along the way. I’ve witnessed their successes, their stumbles, their questions, and their leaps of faith.

So then…

How come it can feel like they don’t know me at all, or I them?

  1. From time to time I think of a line from the play, Our Town. “People barely look at one another…” I’m paraphrasing (badly) but find it’s true nonetheless. So often we scurry through the business of living and forget to live and notice each other. I hope you and your family find moments to really see each other this week.

  2. Funny how that happens – I know what you mean. I have two sisters. One is much older than me, the other, we are closer in age, so we did everything together. But as life would have it, it’s the older sister who knows me inside and out, whereas my younger sister, who I did everything with, at times, feels like a complete stranger to me. I don’t know why it is this way, only that it’s been this way for so long, that I have no other choice but to say that, it is what it is. And I guess that’s okay too. Thank you for sharing this! I can totally relate!
