Vacation

Grateful to be almost home after 1,032 mile 1 week Vacation to NYC. Profoundly grateful fora reliable car, affordable gas prices and a husband who drove the whole way. Grateful that our son and his partner in life Liz, are in a good place of life and happy together after ten years. That gives us peace. Grateful to still have a few days Vacation left to relax, do laundry and see the grandkids. Grateful to be almost (not quite) home.
