The big chair at the Thanksgiving dinner table ,
will be empty this year ,
My Dad sat there , but now he is in Heaven with Mom ,
Yes I will miss him
It’s going to be THANKSGIVING.
Dad loved to tinker in the kitchen ,
Of my earlier memories involved watch Dad artfully wrestle with the turkey
In and out of the oven ,
then stand over it slicking it and smirking at mom as
“ He Sampled the juiciest scraps that somehow conveniently never made it to
The platter ,
That is what I see when I think Thanksgiving,
I see “” DAD “”
Many of us will be sitting down for Thanksgiving dinner this year , having
Lost a loved one . The holidays are different this year having lost Dad ,
Because so many memories of friends , family , have passed that we
are attached to the smell , taste, sound and faces of these special days .
Smelling the aroma of moms cooking and baking .
The memories call up
Unspoken blends of sorrow , joy , humor and regrets .
The holiday can bring
Grief . But is there a way to honor our memories of those who has passed .
And elevate them and use them as a way to build family unity . I believe so ....
In prayer we invite God , ever present to bring a miracle into the. Mix of our
Grief , He can , he does , and he will , When we pray , God will transform your
Grief into joy and hope .
Invite God to set the tone for the day and to offer his perspective to bring his
Miraculous gift of hope , It’s not natural of course , IT IS SUPER NATURAL .
FROM MY HOUSE TO YOURS ,
HAPPY THANKSGIVING ❤️
