It's going on three years that my parents passed away and we forge ahead with new traditions and new memories. I can finally say that things do get easier with time after your loved ones pass away. The grief counselor was right about that one, although I've learned that there will always be a permanent hole in my heart that only my parents can fill. And that's just the way it is.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your families. To those in the US that celebrate, Happy Thanksgiving! And pass the mashed potatoes!
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder (American novelist, 1897-1975)
