So, Thanksgiving is here already. Wow. Wasn’t it just July 4th? Time, what a silly thing. She both drags and flies, and often at the same time. I blame Einstein, because, well, he’s not here to defend himself. And if he were, I imagine I could outrun him anyway.
What was I talking about? Oh yeah, Thanksgiving.
Many of us will be making a trek soon . Some of us will travel a few miles, some of us hundreds of miles, and some even more. For those of us fortunate enough there will be a glorious feast at the end as our reward. But also for most of us it will be bittersweet (for some a little, and for some a lot) because the chairs around that table won’t be quite as full as they once were.
This is my wish for myself, and for you. If you have lost a family member, recently or years ago, take a moment on Thanksgiving and remember them. Talk about them. Tell stories about them. Allow their memory carry on. If you do this, I guarantee those family members will be with you.
