Wonderful words

A neighbor recently sent me a card with a German quote.

She added the English translation: "Every encounter, that touches our soul, leaves behind a trail that never totally drifts away."

I know she was referring to the time she had spent with T.

I know many others felt the same way.

Alone again, unnaturally

Stopped by two New Years Eve get together's last night.
Each was really nice.
There were friends and acquaintances at both.
Everyone was there with their spouse, except for me.
I had a good time but left each party early.
I didn't leave because I was alone.
I left because it just, once again, hit home that I really missed having T by my side.
I know I'll be fine.
The New Year just tends to make us all even more contemplative than usual.

I know that.
