You mean, there’s no bomb?

I received a call tonight that I didn’t quite know how to react to…

My second daughter called me.

That is not that unusual. She has called before but it is usually because we need to talk about some really big, important issues.

As the conversation got started, I didn’t know quite how to react. In fact, I was a little nervous…you know, waiting for the bomb to drop.

After about 10 minutes, I just asked her, “Did you call for any particular reason?”


“So you just wanted to talk?”


“Wow. It’s been such a long time since we did that. I don’t quite know how to act.”

We talked for an hour and a half and it was great. She is welcoming her father back into her life and her father is relishing the opportunity!
