Stuck in an airport hotel

Traveling back from Los Angeles from visiting my oldest, we hit a lightning storm which put us in a holding pattern and we missed our flight connection.

Years ago, this might have gotten me really flustered and upset. But once I lost a child to suicide, stuff like that doesn’t rile me up like it used to.

I also have something to look forward to Friday. Getting together with members of the club no one wants to be in. That always helps. Being with others who have lost a loved one to addiction and/or mental illness helps us all endure this incredibly hard journey.

I will miss my hair appointment which is a pretty sacred appointment in my calendar. So yeah, I was inconvenienced. But no one died or lost a limb. I am good.

I lost my youngest son, Charles, 20, to suicide June 5, 2015. As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory. Professional Speaker Website
