I have not done a very good job of keeping my promise to stay more active on my blogs. Fortunately, my new job has kept me so busy, it is hard to have time to even think. I have been travelling three weeks out of four for my new job and have been back and forth to the West Coast for the past several weeks, coming home on the weekends. I suppose that it's a good thing that I have been so busy. For the time being, most of my travel is going to be on a train, not a plane, just up to NYC for a few day trips and back. Business travel is not as glamorous as many think!
The two recent airplane crashes (Arizona and Chicago area) obviously have caught my attention and interest and have been reading your comments on the forums. Both are so sad. I know what I was going through when Tom's plane crashed and I can only imagine the mother of those three children and how she must be (or not be) coping. And of course the families of those who perished in the Chicago crash. I will continue to follow the news as we try to learn what happened.
I have been trying to live my life in the manner in which Tom lived his and encouraged me to live mine. To live each day to the fullest, to try to find something to smile or laugh about every single day and to live each day as if it could be my last. I think I have done a pretty good job of doing that. I can still see his smile as vivid as the last day I saw him alive and I think he would be very proud of me today. I still miss him very much, especially now around the Holidays. He loved Christmas and this will be the first year that I have spent Christmas at home instead of in the Caribbean. I am still going on our annual vacation, just am not going until January due to vacation time with the new job.
Today is a beautiful day here on the East Coast - at least here in Delaware and I am going to go play golf. He would have taken his plane up today for sure. I have a feeling I will see a little white plane fly overhead at some point during my game.
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and I will once again, strive to be more diligent in my "blogging". Maybe that will be my New Year's resolution!!!
