Remembering Our Loved Ones

Can you believe that there is only 6 weeks til Christmas?!! 

It seems to come faster every year and I know that is what my mother warned me about (and yes it's true that Mother does know best)!  This is the time of year that we really miss our loved ones that have left us.  For me  my mother has been gone 14 years,  my father 12 years.  We lost my father-in-law last year at this time.  That is hard to say and think about.  I know that in time it's gotten easier to deal with, but in the midst of the thinking back on all of those memories during this time of the year I know that it has forever changed me. 

I'm very confident that I am not alone with my feelings but with time I've also learned that my Lord has made me a promise to never leave me or forsake me.  So I want to encourage anyone who my need some words to hold on to while facing loss during the holidays.  Remember to think of the good memories, try to make some new memories,  do something kind for someone else.  Happy Thanksgiving!
