"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Include My Family

The project:
Include my parents in our family's weekend plans.

The weekend, though the planning time was negligible.

Why bother?
This may not seem like a charitable deed, but we do things for and with our own friends and family every day without noting it as a "charitable deed." Still, these are the most important acts to help ensure a strong family.

It's wonderful when your parents want to spend time with you...even when you're "getting on in years." (Yep, this was birthday weekend.) So including them in our weekend plans was a must.

Worth it?
It was really nice to have my parents with us at the high-density campground along an otherwise secluded shore. What's most wonderful about it, though, is that my parents can share space with each other. I'm ever so thankful for them.
