Yep, it's that day again. Not the date, that will be Tuesday - but the day. It's been 7 years - seems like yesterday and seems like an eternity!
Seven years ago, on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, my sweet Joshy left this Earth bound for Heaven! A car wreck took his life, and took a big chunk of my heart! Seven years of grieving, tears, emptiness, laughter and joy in memories!
We had to learn how to live again, how to go on. My sweet, sweet DH made me go to Walmart in the weeks that followed - I almost couldn't do it! God gave us the grace that surpasses all understanding, He gave us a peace that only could come from Him and the Holy Spirit, He gave us the wonderful hope and promise of being together again.
Today in church, during praise and worship, I was holding a 6 month old baby boy. His parents are disfunctional and struggling, not always making the best choices for him. So we were singing - he and I - with eyes closed - when I saw Joshy, smiling thru the clouds, and he said, "l love you, Momma!"
Don't take anything for granted, don't let the sun set on an argument, don't sweat the small stuff, tell people that you love them. We are not promised the next breathe, or minute, or hour, or year - only the moment we are in right now!
Happy Thanksgiving and may God bless you all!
In His name,
