“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
A quote from JFK’s 1963 Thanksgiving Proclamation
However and whoever you celebrated with, I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving holiday.
Here is a quick peek at how we spent our solo, pandemic Thanksgiving:
One reason I write this blog is to time travel. Each Saturday that passes will never be repeated. The girls get a little older and a little farther away from me. One day they won’t want me to take their picture, never mind post it on the Internet. How embarrassing.
So I write it all down. To make myself pay attention. I’m not always great about being present. I’m trying, but some days are hard.
The old saw is the days are long, but the years are short. It’s true, of course. But here’s the thing: grandparents and friends with older kids, they forget.
