We are lucky enough to be able to travel to my parent's house for the holiday. My sister and her family will be there as well. I think my Mom is so thrilled she could burst. with all of the grandchildren grown and moving out this probably won't happen many more times.
I think we need to focus on the good out there rather than the upsetting things happening in the world. Be informed, yes, but then turn the news OFF. Don't dwell in it. Go out and enjoy your family, or friends, or out earth, or all of the above.
Blessings to you all.
