365 Days of Happiness (105/365)

Peter’s father was laid to rest today in Holland.  Direct flights were incredibly expensive and the flights with layovers were 12-18 hours of travel each way.  Ugh.  What happened to the concept of “compassion flights” for people who need to travel last-minute for this very purpose.  I suppose airlines had to eliminate “compassion” in the search for best profits.


The good news….Peter’s nephew was able to arrange for the memorial service to be telecast for the Americans who found it difficult to travel.  So this morning we logged in and watched the lovely service.  Peter’s sister Karen arranged flowers from Peter and I and a smaller arrangement from Cait and Erin.  Each of the sisters spoke, it was lovely.

Rest in peace Piet.  I am sure you are dancing in heaven with Peter’s mom, Co.  Today, I am again grateful for the technology that manages to connect hearts over thousands of miles.  #ChooseHappiness365 (105/365).

Ciao for now….Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
