This Saturday will be a 'major event' on the order of the triggers that pushed them back into the bottle many months ago. This isn't an event that can be avoided; they need to attend. We'll be there together (I'll be taking photos), and they've already been warned that at the first sign of stress I will throw them over my shoulder and carry them out the door and the world can kiss my keister if they don't like it**. I'm praying for their strength and my discernment. This will be an emotional event for all involved (yes, even me), and marking "the line" will be difficult.

** (I really don't think I'll have to go to those extremes, but I need the strength and resolution to do so if necessary).
It was an amazingly good evening. No tears. Joyous. And some reconciliation; I'd SERIOUSLY pissed off her sister this summer (and vice versa). We made up.

This is the stuff that gets me. We're all goobers. Every once in a while the Holy Ghost lets us realize that and rise above it. Great stuff, Skip. I'm glad.

Still praying, though.
