Hey, I just wanted to extend my thanks to everyone who read my post about the death of my brother, and special appreciation to all who left their thoughts and condolences.
It’s a strange and terrible life event, obviously, but your support has really helped me work my way through the emotional morass. This whole blogging thing is in many ways bizarre.
I know, but don’t really know, so many people who are wonderful, intelligent, and caring individuals, people I will probably never meet in person and whose virtual hugs can never substitute for the real thing, but when I read ‘hugs’ in a comment I immediately feel the embrace of people who share common thoughts, emotions, and life experiences.
The fact that you take the time to read my musings on travel, parenthood, marriage, and life in general is humbling, inspiring, and affirming. So I just wanted to say ‘Thank you, thank you so much.’
And as this is all getting pretty maudlin, I also promise to get back to the business of dishing out real-life scrutinies of this whole parenting thing, hopefully useful information on travel destinations, and bits and bobs about kids and how best to screw them up.
Cheers, everyone! You are the ones who make it all worthwhile!
