Thank you for traveling so far to eat with us and our children. We all benefit greatly from the tradition, reaffirming that indeed, our family lines both are crowded with kooks. When you get old like us, you realize that these are not good or bad things. That things simply are the way they are. No matter how firmly we try to deny it, that is the truth we have learned.
We love you all, though we may not appreciate you always. We are trying to get better at all things we do. We are prone to much failure. But failure, we have also learned, promotes our growth. So, we try to call those successes. This mostly feels very silly even though we understand the meaning of the exercise, failure always feels like failure.
Fortunately, we have all you good people on our sides and it's for this that we thank you. Because life is an easier journey when you have people there to encourage you to continue on your path. Yes, this sounds silly too. But these are the words that are currently in vogue for expressing gratitude. So those words come most naturally for us.
We continue to love you,
Frida and Freddy
