One New Thing Every Day

From the day I turned 29, I tried to do one new thing a day... it took a few extra months, but I did it! Now I'll post new things randomly as I try them.

#121 - A Sea of Strangers

Today I attended a "celebration of life" for someone I've only met once. This wonderful gentleman passed away last week and I only met him years ago at a work event. At the last minute today, I was asked to go to the celebration on behalf of my organization. It was heart-warming to see such a crowded room, but I felt out of place having only met him once. I felt slightly sheepish offering condolences to his son, but I'm still glad I went so that we could say "thank you" to his family for all he did for our community.
