They couldn’t have wished for a better day…
The sun was warm, and the adults were resting in the the shadow of a tall oak tree.
Who would have thought, right?
It had been Tricia’s idea, to finally meet in this park they all knew so very well. Just weeks before, they were perfect strangers, living only neighbourhoods apart. Thinking about it now, they had probably run into each other at least once, during the past thirty years or so.
This seemed so strange, now.
Camilla, Judith and Patricia all had their doubts about bringing their families together, although really wanting to.
But seeing how naturally the kids bounded, they knew they had made the right choice.
Aren’t they cute together?
Judith poured a couple of sips of white wine in the empty carton cups, while the boys’ giggles filled the air as they splashed each other in the quiet streamI’. To them, there was no need for double thinking, they just enjoyed their time together.
I’d like to offer a cheer to aunt Lucille, who insisted in letting us know about each other before she passed away.
The separated at birth triplets all raised their cups.
I really shouldn’t drink, – Judith said. I think I’m pregnant again…
The three women exchanged a weird look.
Me too! – Patricia and and Camilla added, in the same breath.
Family ties really were stronger than what they had imagined. And now that they had connected, nothing could take them apart anymore.
