“And thank you for a house full of people I love. Amen.”
- Terri Guillemets
Life throws us curve balls. Some we catch and others get dropped. During the last several days we had family emergencies, change of plans, comings and goings, and hosting for Thanksgiving. There were tears, laughter, music and quiet. There were hugs, dancing, pain and joy. It was a yoyo of emotions and moods.
Pauses for resting, eating, walking and just being helped me navigate the tumultuous days. Mostly though I was filled with gratitude that our daughters were home and much of our family was here. Holidays can be difficult because we miss our loved ones that can’t be with us. This year, some had other plans, some have passed away and some were too ill to travel. It was a mixture of sweetness for those that were here with a cloud of sadness for the ones we missed.
What are you looking forward to?
