FOWC with Fandango – Reconcile


Fandango gives us the word reconcile to use in a post.


I am truly beginning to think that the universe has some strange plan unknown to me. I am merely a pawn in the juicy scheme that is happening around me. I am unsure if the possibility of reconciling is filled with fear or joy, or both.

It’s been twenty years since we angrily parted. We have seen each other a few times at family gatherings. The interactions were uncomfortable to say the least. We were cordial but not in any way the family we had been. I mourned for the lost relationship.

I reached out with an olive branch. It’s been a few weeks and I doubted I would hear back. Today I received a written reply that gives me a little hope. It also confused the heck out of me. I am unsure of what my next step should be. I know there are powers beyond me at play in the whole situation. I know that I’d like to reconcile before it is too late.

I am unsure of what the future holds for us, but I hope it is a return to some sort of familial unity.

  1. I became estranged years ago from my two older sisters, who are both gone now, so it’s too late to reconcile our differences. But even if that wasn’t the case, I think the chasm that brought about the estrangement might have been beyond reconciliation.

  2. Reaching out towards reconciliation was a good and positive thing to do. If it’s not reciprocated that doesn’t deminish the act or intention. I hope the outcome is what’s best for you. Most of us have a choice like this to make at some point in our lifetimes.
