My journey to Louisiana is finally over. I’m home in Maryland now, where I’ve longed to be since the day my grandmother died… I feel a relief. However, I am missing Louisiana a great deal… the comfort and freedom you experience down there far outdoes Maryland.
I still think about my grandparents often as well… being back here and away from Louisiana makes me miss them a little bit more, but it was nice to finally get whatever closure we could, and spreading their ashes brought an incredible relief that they both promised would come when it happened.
I think I also have greater opportunity to refocus my life on what I want to do and where I want/need to be. The time I spent with my grandparents, I learned how to focus on my dreams and goals, and shove my way through respectfully to grab ‘em and take sole possession of it all.
So I’m officially closing the Louisiana chapter in my life, and focusing on this next chapter, wherever it may begin to lead me.
