I searched this thread and found this quote by my Canadian friend. I have a picture in the "pics to remember" thread of my whole family together in the desert and said that this will never happen again. Well, it may just happen. I might have mentioned that my oldest daughter who will be 23 at the end of this week made a bold statement about me that severed our ties about 3 years ago. She hit pretty low below the belt and it has been weighting heavy on her mom and I for some time. My wife could not take it anymore and she made a promise to our son, that when he comes home from Chile in Aug 2011 she would have tried her best to get the family back together. (I knew she was a great manager for me) Well she picked up the phone Thursday and called our oldest and said she needs to make the trip out from San Diego Saturday and do a face to face with Dad (ME) and state your accusations face to face. My wife told me Thursday I could not make my event Saturday and told me why. I was a little upset and excited that she was coming to see us.On a more serious note CDA, they'll come around. Daughters always come back to their Dads. Hope it is sooner rather than later for ya.
Well to make a long story short, my daughter did show up Saturday (I gave her no credit and thought she would not show) around 10am and we talked and cried for 4 hours at the dining room table. She apologized for the things she accused me for and I apologized for things I did not know I did. I told her I am still upset about the things that were said and it will take some time to get that behind me and I could not promise that our relationship will ever be as close as it once was, but I am glad we are on the right path now.
Now she needs to patch things up between her and her sister and once that happens, the family circle will be back together. If it all works out, I might have a huge family picture to take in the desert between 12/26 - 1/1. With only my Son missing from that one for now. So who would like to come out with me on that week and take that picture if it happens??????
So to go back to my friend's quote above.....You are right, Daughters do make their way back to their Dads. Speaking of daughters, my other daughter just logged in to her MSN messenger and is sending me a message...
