February was a rough month for me as the dark dreary days seem like they’d never end. My 95 year-old grandmother fell and gashed open her head mid-month and spent some time in the hospital. Luckily she didn’t break any bones, but the passing of an elderly friend earlier in the month made me book at ticket home.
My trip was relaxing, stressful, sad, joyful, sunny, and calming. All my siblings were in town as we celebrated my mom and my nephew’s birthdays and came together to visit grandma. It was good.
While I don’t know that I’d use the word “revitalized,” when I returned to Seattle I felt better. I’d gotten sun and a huge heap of time with family which was just what I needed.
