We don’t go to a lot of movies but this week we went to two excellent ones. Midway and ford vs ferrari. Both over 2 hours and both were so impacting I was actually able to get into the movie and escape our real life for awhile. Our family does not do Christmas presents but I do group games with prizes and have 44 now wrapped. We shop all year and go to garage sales and after season sales so never pay full price for anything. I guess that’s one advantage of taking my daughter 4 days a week to various agencies and for 2 hours we have to find something to do while she is there. Ironically we’ve been asked if we could spend time with a 17 year old young man who is really struggling right now. The downside me is what do we have to offer and give as I feel I’ve failed in so many ways and have so many agencies as a part of our life. The upside me is I know pain, hurt and grief and can just be available for him and what he needs.
