She walked into the room that was filled with friends.
The laughter engulfed her ears.
The familiarity should be there.
She should feel comfortable...
...but she didn't.
She was surrounded by couples.
She was the only single.
A role she should be okay with by now...
But, for some reason... today, it hit her wrong.
She was expected to sit..
Her safe place (with her children) was not available - they were by their friends.
As her head swirled, she tried to not look indecisive... alone.
But that is what she was... alone, in a room full of people.
The perpetual small sorrow of expat life
