What a doozy of a week we have had here in the United States. I have never been much into politics, but this election has affected me deeply. As a woman and a minority who came to this country as an immigrant, I feel personally touched by many of the issues that have been a source of much conflict and anger. Already, there are reports of hatred and cruel acts happening in our own city. It’s a scary time, with many people grieving a great loss and fearing an unknown future. It’s hard to make sense out of all of this.
We’ve been trying our best to trudge along in our little corner of the world. The boys are busy as usual with their million activities. Tom and I have been immersed in work and chores and watching The Crown on Netflix.
This weekend, we will run our first 5k as a family. Some of us (Biggest and Littlest) are more prepared than others (me and Tom), but we plan to stick together, encourage whoever is struggling, and do our best. I think that strategy can apply to a lot of things these days. Peace to you, Friends.
