Holidays are undoubtably the hardest times of the year for widows as families gather together to celebrate. There is always that empty chair in her mind…….someone especially loved who is missing. The first few years are terribly hard, but eventually she learns to put on the face of quiet acceptance.
Nonetheless, the sweet memories of her loved one don’t fade into the background. Instead they rise to the forefront so that she can take them out and polish them as precious jewels. In time she learns to cherish them as something rare and priceless. When that time comes, she is able to find herself sitting in the “Thanksgiving Chair”.
Where will you be sitting this Thanksgiving?
