Today is Friday. Today, I ventured out to my downtown area. I NEVER go out on black Friday. I was so delightfully surprised because it was not crowded and there were not people beating each other up to buy STUFF.
I was able to go to my local sandwich shop and have a wonderful lunch. I headed to the local bookstore to buy Matt a magazine he has been wanting and yes, there were people shopping; but it was casual and relaxed.
It was cold but the sun was shining and people were smiling.
Matt called today and we talked about the fact he was given a consecutive 18 months sentence for seeking asylum. According to international law, people can’t be punished for that but hey, I live in the US where laws are ignored, ridiculed, dismissed.
I don’t know what’s going to happen in all of this, but what I do know is that we will have to fight as a threesome like we have had to do for the past 8 years. I really miss our Canadian lawyers. They were real; they were awesome; they were our friends.
One day, it will all shake out.
Today, I saw Christmas trees for sale; live ones. I haven’t had a tree since they stole my son. Matt asked me to get one and take pictures for him. So, I am going to get a tree this year.
Keep the faith friends. Most days, it’s all we got. Peace and love.
