This past week I was fortunate enough to be chosen to go to my company’s tradeshow in Houston. I went into it knowing it wasn’t all fun and games, but a great deal of work. 6 straight days of 10 hour days. I flew down with 2 friends which made the trip better. The first couple days, I ordered dinner in my room. I was just tried. But my friend told me I wasn’t going to do that the whole trip. She made reservations for two nights. It was great, I got to enjoy some company I don’t normally get to enjoy.
While working the tradeshow, I got to interact with our exhibitors, and some of our special groups. My presence was requested by management, which really made me feel good. I didn’t want to disappoint anyone.
I did have some time to myself each day. Enough to keep in touch with my kids and the man I started seeing just a couple weeks ago. The only problem was sleeping. I couldn’t get comfortable and I think it was the hotel pillows. I like firm pillows, but the pillows at the hotel were squishy.
Traveling did remind me of my dear friend. He traveled all the time for business, and I loved hearing from him when he was gone. I traveled through him, since I didn’t have the money to travel myself. So even though I was happy to be allowed to go to the tradeshow, I was sad missing him as much as I do. How does someone get over losing the love of their life? If anyone can tell me I would really appreciate it. I know he is with me still and wants me to move on and be happy, but part of my heart and soul died when he did. How do you grow a new heart?
