It was chicken soup tonight; not roast, but it was the family dinner. The Conversation centered around the future plans of the family… Knowing that I plan on relocating in the next few years, I asked my son earlier in the day, if he and GF are speaking in terms of the future, and if so, where are they planning to be.
Son#1 seemed relieved to have it out in the open, and gf took on the role of family member, future daughter in law. My confidente. My approval was implicit. If you love her, I will love her. I wonder if I did the right thing. I love him and want him to be happy, but that is different from my agreement that she is the best choice for him. Maybe my two failed marriages remove me as judge.
Maybe all I have to offer is love.
So we plan my escape to leave the city that is my home.
