On this, the first day of the holiday weekend, it’s been warm and sunny in my hometown – at long last! As the day has turned to evening, the frogs have begun their chorus. The birds add their songs, too, creating a symphony from natural world.
Tonight we are playing games on a collapsible table outside. My family loves to have game nights. Everything from Mancala to Monopoly, SkipBo to War. I think our current favorites are Dr. Who Yahtzee, Go Fish (the Van Gogh and Friends one is delightful), and Niya.
On this Memorial Day weekend, celebrating freedom should be welcomed. The sacrifices of those who earned said freedom should also be remembered.
This being said, I hope all have a safe and enjoyable weekend with family and friends. Especially with all the distress around the world.
