Daughter One has flown to the other side of the country, the west coast of Australia, to visit with her sister, Daughter Two and finally meet new niece, Peppercorn.
I was at work when an email arrived from D1 telling me she was downstairs enjoying a solo coffee while waiting for D2 and Peppercorn to wake up.
Seconds later, an email from D2 with a photo of a smiling Peppercorn wishing me a happy Monday.
Microseconds, another email from D1 saying she wished D2 would wake up.
Mother (me) five hours away by plane on the east coast, emails back and tells her D2 and Peppercorn are awake. Family reunited.
Scary isn’t it.
