My father in law died over the weekend. The situation is really bad and quite shocking. Additionally, it is always difficult to explain how surreal an overseas death is. I have a flurry of thoughts on this, none of which I can express. Sure, it is my blog, but it is not my father. This week is crazy as Manoj prepares for his trip to India and I prepare to be a single parent for awhile.
These are the times when I am so grateful to have small children. Yesterday, we took the kids to a nearby Bass Pro and watched them revel in the simplicity that is fish swimming in water. Not only do children provide for much-needed distractions, but they help adults keep things in perspective. We certainly need that right now.
I will not be posting for awhile, but when I come back I will return to pithy, puerile posting. This will probably be the last time I mention this because this is not my story to tell..
Please, keep us in your thoughts.
