Tomorrow is Bound to be Surreal
Monday, January 30, 2017
I hop on a plane very early tomorrow morning for a few days' business trip to Dallas. Tomorrow is bound to be very surreal. I've never gone on a business trip with coworkers. My boss and I are going to be sitting next to each other, working during the flight and about 6 other coworkers will be on the same flight.
My boss and I are going to have a very nice dinner, I hope, after we get there. He knows that tomorrow is a very significant day in my heart. If my older brother were living, he would be celebrating a huge birthday. He died many years ago saving another boy's life. He was my hero in life and became a hero writ large in that final act.
I don't know how much sparking time I will have during this trip, but you can believe I'll be wearing my Fitbit as I navigate the airport! Please pray that I don't freeze up, don't have trouble walking and don't fall on the way....
Rest in peace, my beloved brother! I know you're singing with the angels and looking down on the family that loves and misses you even now.
