Take a Break From Trump

We were out with friends last Sunday night. We had spent many hours together and were enjoying one last beverage before we went our separate ways.  I mentioned something Donald Trump had done that week.  

“I thought we were going to get through the evening without talking about him,”  our friend said with just a little disappointment in his tone.  

My friend’s response wasn’t a rebuke exactly but it was a good reminder.  I need more time spent without thought and worry about the troubling political developments south of the border.  It intrudes too much on the joy I should take in the blessings of the present, the company of good friends, the love of family and the opportunities I have to be creative, contribute to my community and learn and grow as a person. 

I know I need to keep informed about what is going on in the United States because it does impact Canadians and the rest of the world but………. I should remember there are always more productive and positive things to focus on and talk about than the latest antics of the American President.
