A Letter to Natalie

I still don't have much to say here on my blog, but I thought I would share the latest letter I sent my ex about our son.

---

Natalie,

I've all but given up hope that I'll hear from you, but I had to try again - for my father's sake.

He turns 69 on Saturday, and he's saying that he feels like it's almost his time to go. I don't want to lose my father without him knowing his only grandchild.

You wouldn't deny your mother that, would you? He doesn't have several children each of whom with grandchildren - he has me. One son, with one grandson.

Please. I don't want to cause trouble, I don't want us to fight - I don't want to take anything away from you or fight you on anything.

I just want my father to meet his grandson before it's too late.

I'm begging you to please just put our past behind us. I'm sure we've both grown a lot as people at this point.

Please.

Daniel

How could she not comply to that? And I hope your dad gets to feeling better.

Hey! I didn't know you were back.

Good luck, man. It's hard to imagine someone can hold that hard of a grudge that long. I hope she relents.

Please do not desert your loyal readers. This is the only entertaining blog I can find. Do not do this to me.
