Linda is our host for SoCS which allows us to just go with flow as we write. As I started reading other’s responses this morning I tried to narrow down what I might write about. I thought about some glorious trips I have had the pleasure to take. I thought about weekly trips to my acupuncture treatments. And of the course, the mundane necessary trips to the grocery store. But I decided instead to write about the trip my SO’s family are taking now.

My sadness for the family is immense.
I know too well the feelings of loss and grief.
