Spent some time with Char’s mum and grand mum and it was nice. I love my family. But I’m also reminded of our differences each time we are together. Like their inability to change their thinking in many situation, even the blindingly obvious.
Who else would ask Char 3 or 4 times if she wants alcohol, while she has said not because she is breast-feeding and actually doing so while being asked?
Who else, of course, but a loving family member, really wanting to be hospitable and create and atmosphere of cozy?
Wanting it too much, perhaps.
But that is family. You get the whole package. Your choice how you unwrap it and appreciate what’s inside.
