I’m so glad we decided to do Mom’s burial on Monday’s warm and sunny Earth Day, because today was much colder and rainy. With all the memorial events completed, I drove my brother and his girlfriend to the airport for their flight home to Colorado. It had been awhile since I drove in Chicago’s morning rush-hour traffic! Sure am glad I don’t have to drive in that every day anymore!
It was sure nice to have them both with me these past few days and weeks. We started talking about future get-togethers this summer which will certainly be something fun to look forward to.
But, for today, once I got back home, it was a day to do virtually nothing else but rest and recharge after the life-changing events of the past few weeks. I really needed it!
