This weekend I downloaded some songs for the grandkids, some from my youth and some that my children sang when they were kids. I want to teach the girls to do a duet of The Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” – won’t they be darling? – plus that song’s been on my mind.
Because even though this spiral of death and disease and illness of friends and friends’ families has continued unabated – and the economy’s still a mess and the environment, well, let’s not go there – despite the bad things, daily life is still pretty A-OK most of the time.
The family just passed another milestone – Thanksgiving sans Bill – and it was great. Happy, loving and fun. No one cried. We had Marie-Noelle in from Los Angeles and my step-sister Lisa down from Rogers.
Mother was herself emotionally, though she wore slap out by evening. We don’t know what the future holds, though we can see certain trends, if we’re observant.
But despite those trends, we can focus on today. And today is a pretty sweet dream.
