Saturday morning chatter
Saturday, July 01, 2017
Well, the week end is here, but for us it is just another day. But at noon, we will be meeting hubby's family at a local café for a bite to eat. The BIL is having their class reunion this weekend and so they are home for that and want to get together. We have absolutely nothing planned for the 4th. It is just another day. Another Sparker was writing how they use to celebrate and now that the family is grown things are so different than when the kids are home. Yes, I agree, holidays are not anything like they were, and we usually am lucky to get a phone call from the boys. They have their own families and made their own traditions. It is kind of sad, but that is just the way it is. I know after I left home, and got married and had the boys, I did the same thing, we just sort of moved on. But I know when I was a child we still had holidays with the whole family, aunt, uncles, cousins, grandparents, you name it, everyone was there and had huge banquets. I think it was our generations that changed a lot of that, and the fact that the world was changing so much. Travel was easier, more women were working, we became more independent, and then our kids just continued the down-fall of the family. It is a shame but that is what it is.
Well, I have to move forward, so take care and have a GET day. Linda
