This coming Friday, I leave for a three week trip to South Africa. I am going as part of an International Social Work class. I am (understandably) very excited. But, then I remember . . .
The only reason that I am going is because Christopher died nearly 7 months ago. People asked if I am looking forward to it, but they don’t realize that before this trip was planned, I had reservations for our favorite unit at our favorite condo on Ormond Beach, Florida. Our reservation was July 12-19. I’d much rather be going to the “same old place” with Christopher than to be taking this adventure.
