The approach of the holidays is harder than ever when
someone you love cannot be apart of your life.
It really doesn't matter why they will be absent....
it is just that they are not there to celebrate with you.
When we were first married, my husband was surprised when
my mother said how sad she would be because we were not able
to come home for Thanksgiving one year.
He said; I don't understand why she feels that way, she has 4 other children.
He didn't understand until our own daughter could not come home one year.
It doesn't matter how many people are present,
if there is one person you love and that person is absent...
no one can take their place. No one can be that person.
No one can fill their place at the table or around the Christmas tree.
I feel like that about Peggy and the holidays.
I have many people in my life that I love dearly and who will bring joy for the gatherings to come.
There was just one Peggy and....................
She has disappeared and cannot be a part of the holiday joy this year!
