Thanksgiving and Christmas makes us think about family and friends. Because we have not been able to get together and have had Zoom gatherings, etc., in a sense we have become closer. Somehow the common “enemy” has forged our ties into stronger stuff!
A conversation with a friend revealed he was feeling equally pensive and nostalgic. He said that he had always wanted to ask his parents about his family story and just never did. He would always think about it when the holiday season was upon them and because he had not been prepared, he postponed it until “next time.” He was always going to call them, meet with them, he had so many questions to ask. Then suddenly it was too late.
