In some ways it was the most meaningful holiday ever.
No frills or fuss. No shopping or rushing around.
Just focused on family.
I know what it is like to lose someone I love deeply and desperately.
I will do ANYTHING to prevent that again. ( even wear a little mask)
Mama’s tree was tiny but covered with memories.
Daddy’s chair was empty but we took turns sitting in it.
I am more aware of the breezes. I hear the birds. I marvel at the changing colors of the sunsets.
I am still alive, though with a broken heart.
My treasures have truly changed.
Hold yours closely.
Time is precious and passing.
