day four

today was exhausting. very long day at work. walked the 3 blocks to my car in the pouring rain, i had forgotten my umbrella. then sat in traffic for over an hour on my way to the wake of my college roommate’s stepfather. it was snowing for the first time this season (october in connecticut!) and traffic inched along for miles and miles.  at the wake, my friend tells me she had a miscarriage and two days later, today, she is burying her stepdad. my heart is breaking for her. so much loss. unfair amounts for one person. she knows i can relate.

“it’s not easy and it’s not fair”, i tell her as we hug. “i am so sorry.”

i started a gratitude wall in my office and today i added  “my health” to it.
