The nearly-retired grandpa that tries to make it over to his daughter’s house to kiss his grandkids goodnight after a long day at the office. The step-mom who runs three errands before 8am and then parks her car at the station before getting on the hour-long train ride into the city to work a 9 hour day. The young man who gets up before the sun to get started on his hour-long walk from his home to the home of his employer to work for the day.
We all appreciate the work that you do every day.
We are all sympathetic to the time you have to give to your travels.
We all wish you well on your everyday-journey.
We send you happy-thoughts and prayers as you try to stay positive on your commute.
hugs and love
