Are you missing someone this holiday season? If so, I’m there with you! It’s during this time that the hole in our hearts rears its ugly, painful head again. Yes, I usually cry big, ugly tears this time of the year (already done that, check)!✅
Me? I’m missing my dad. 💔That empty chair is a huge void around the table. I miss his deep voice, constant encouragement, and telling me, “I’m so proud of you. You can do this!” I miss calling him on my way home from work and conversing about our day. I’m so blessed to have a few of his voice mails saved (like precious gold). Hearing his voice, however, is a blessing AND curse- I love it, but it yanks hard and rips opens that chasm in my heart even wider.
I’m wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and sending an extra little thought and prayer for those dealing with hurt, anger, loneliness, and loss during the holidays.
I can’t believe it’s been six years!! I miss you terribly, Dad!😇
Until next time,
