Difficult Conversations

Tonight there was a family dinner with all my siblings and my parents – along with my brother-in-law and nephew. It has been 3 years since we have all been together. My dad has been thinking a lot about the future and finances – particularly since his recent medical issue. So, he took the opportunity to discuss his income, financial obligations, and estate plans since everyone was there. It was not an easy conversation to have, but it was very important and I think it helped to put him at ease and everyone now has the same understanding. We had a wonderful meal and everyone helped out in some way. My brother-in-law brought his camera equipment so we were able to get a picture of all of us. We visited, laughed, encouraged, and were able to have some of those tough conversations.

I Found God today in being all together with my siblings and parents, and having some difficult conversations.
