The house is now empty. There has been a whirlwind of activity within these walls over the past seven days, and although everyone has now departed and is heading back to lives put on 'pause', I keenly feel the weight of accumulated human presence left in their wake. In this early hour, I wander through impossibly and profoundly silent rooms, realizing again how meager my world would be without family and friends. They stand as proof that I'm blessed.

Thank you for sharing as it's the true meaning for being thankful when we reach a place of understanding.

Mike, some days I feel the distance more than others. Have you found that, too? And while it's hard to separate, it's so delicious to look forward to coming together again!
