When my niece was here, I took her to Michael’s. She’s a mini-me, it’s hilarious. We’d stop in front of the same shelf and stare at the same products with the same expression. We are completely in tune, on the same weird wavelength. You can’t transmit this kind of thing by phone or through a screen.

My sister and I would go outside after putting kids to bed and sit on the patio, and have really deep conversations.

Now I’m sitting here alone, crying. I don’t know when I’ll see them again.

  1. Divide and conquer.

    With the things as they are I don’t have much hope of seeing my family that lives outside of the US again. With the lockdowns, work from home and fear of the virus, the normal relationships among the coworkers, acquaintances, friends and families are destroyed or at least disrupted. We are being conquered, and not by the virus.

  2. I am so sorry for your sorrow and loss. It’s real and very painful. You are in my prayers. I don’t want to say anything trite. I know it just really hurts. You are loved. I cherish this blog. Hang in there.
