I was thinking about something sad today. A few years ago when we had the big scare with my father-in law, his daughters showed up and were frequent visitors. I haven't seen them since.
See, my FIL is actually my husband's stepDad. He has three daughters from his first marriage. I've met them a few times but couldn't pick them out of a line-up. They are never over there on his birthday or father's day. I know this because we usually are. I've only seen them around the Christmas holidays one time and my 27 year old daughter was still in high school. So that's been a while.
I wonder why it is that when it comes to old people, everyone makes time for goodbye, but no one ever bothers with hello.
