Today, I sat alone. I went to go watch my kids perform with their choir for the spring recital. At first, there were plenty of empty seats. A few family here and there. But in a matter of minutes, the audience was filling up with couples, families, friends, and grandparents. Surrounded by groups, I sat … Continue reading Today, I Sat Alone
Yesterday on Sunday, April 21, 2019, I have decided to commit to a year of no dating. For the past year and half, I had been actively dating (on and off).
