Generations: The best is yet to come
I have been reminded of several things during this time of transition in the family, and that inter-generational relationships (as LindaRe pointed out in comments on the earlier post) were the norm, not the exception. The whole idea of "independent" living in little nuclear units of husband wife and 2.5 children came about during the affluence post World War II. I for one, love intergenerational living and the benefits it brings to all the family--the passage of history, tradition, and skills, help with the overwhelming tasks of keeping up our enormous houses and all of our gadgets, child care, elder care, and learning to share and contribute. What could be better?
Happy Saturday all--cold front's coming and the sunshine is gone for now.
