Family Divided, much like the Government right now. When I describe Thanksgiving in my family home to people I tell them that they should be a fly on the wall. It can be quite entertaining, as I am sure it can be in many homes. With such a division taking over the country right now, I can’t help but chuckle. I texted my sister-in-law the other day because we are also politically divided – haha. She and I actually agree on an outcome. I am friends with folks on both sides and you know sometimes we just have to give a little. A little love and compassion goes far when dealing with others. Of course, we are going to have bad days and act out of character at times. I can’t keep the news on the TV anymore.
I went to my yoga class this morning and then met a college friend at noon Mass. What a great start to the week! It is sad, though, that my priest had to ask for money for the security guard (police officer) he has hired for services. There is simply too much violence in the world. As I type this I pray for peace and love and the day we no longer need to worry about hiring an officer to watch over the church during Mass.
