    I had the BEST christmas gift yesterday. It wasn't something tangible.
    My two Son in -Laws fell out 5 - 6 years ago after a silly argument and therefore my two Daughters haven't been able to get together as a family to celebrate Birthdays, Holidays or celebrations. I mean they have always got together - but not with their husbands.
    WELL, yesterday I cooked a belated Christmas dinner and our eldest Daughter initiated a get together - in our house ( neutral ground) and it was as though nothing had ever happened. It was WONDERFUL to see the boys chatting together and so from now on we can be a complete family again. I am blessed!!

    Makes it all worthwhile, what a lovely present. My two brothers had a falling out (do to my sister in law) and they did not speak for years until our maother passed, too late for her to see them get back together. So glad you have that opportunity

    The past is the past. It's wonderful to know they've matured enough to set aside their potential differences for the greater good of the family. Many more events like that to come I hope!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!
