My First Holiday

I am a widow for three months now and Thanksgiving was my first holiday without my beloved soul mate. I  have come to the realization that a holiday is no different than another day, some are good some are not,  but by the grace of God  thanksgiving was a day of giving thanks for me,  I was with family that love me very much and they loved my husband very much and yes we said his name  and that it was quite with out him, my husband was the sunshine of our family he brought laughter and smiles to everyone and evrywhere he went, that is what we keep alive in our hearts . Remembering and sharing  how much our loved one ment to us is a very helpful way to heal and my greatest thanks is to my Lord his promise is he will always be with me and guide me and I can cast my cares on him and I do.
