Day 364 - November Gratitude, part 28
Sunday, November 29, 2015
My parents arrived around 2:30pm, later than I expected, but glad that they have things to do at their home to keep them busy and active! We took them on a tour of the area where the Valley Fire had burned, then stopped at an art exhibit suggested by our friend Robert. My dad, who never meets a stranger, immediately struck up a conversation with the artist. It was entertaining all of us to watch.
We ended the evening back at our house, with Robert joining us for dinner. More lively conversation and shared stories ensued.
I'm so grateful for the holidays and the way they tend to bring people together, through a shared history or a new history that is suddenly shared. The holiday season is full of joy and warmth and humanity, an important reminder to all of us that we are more alike than we are different.
I hope your holiday season is beginning joyfully! Keep Sparking!
