Well, my lease is coming to end in a few weeks and I originally planned to ride, ride and then ride some more as my vacation winds down. But life has other plans for me. My grandmother died this morning, so I am road-tripping it up to New England with my mom for the funeral Wednesday. My grandmother has been sick for a long time now so this wasn’t a big surprise. I am sad that she is gone, but I know she’s not in pain anymore. It hasn’t hit me really yet, although I haven’t been close with her as an adult. I will get the most emotionally choked up seeing everyone else’s sorrow over this – especially my mom’s – but also my cousins who all live up north near her. They had a much closer bond with her than I had so this hits them much harder I am sure.
Give your loved ones a hug today. And happy riding to the rest of you.
