Spreading love, joy, peace, faith & unity

Remember November

Dig deep in your brain
Remember November now
It’s gratitude month

In Novembers past
Remember who you shared with
Then count your blessings

Time has changed a lot
Large gatherings here are gone
I hope they’ll return

Family is so precious!

Family: the people you choose to love

Remember the yummy spread of food?

Remember the days
When decorations were seen
All around the house?

Will we still create
A festive mood this season
Without the big crowd?

Don’t cry for me!
We won’t gather round this table this year
for our Thanksgiving celebration…
but we will be with dear friends –
and our son will be with family
in a lovely California destination.

My heart goes out
to family and friends
who will experience
The Empty Chair
this year.

Several of our friends
Relate to the empty chair
Missing who was there

If you’re only two
And the group is not around
Be grateful for two

Thank the Lord you have
One another and rejoice
Then join friends of choice

Have a Memorable and Blessed November!

God bless You!
Lotsa Love,

God Bless
My “friend of choice!”
I’m so grateful to have him here…
(That was our 60th anniversary photo!)

  1. I still love to decorate, even thro there has been so many changes in my life, I praise God for keeping me and my daughters safe each and everyday, and that he walks with us in this journey of life.

    I would love to sit at your table and share Thanksgiving day with you. It’s hard to believe it’s already November! Where did 2022 go? As I reflect on that question I realize that I’ve done a lot so far this year with traveling and visiting family and friends, weddings, changing jobs and working, home improvements and much more. I am so thankful for my many blessings and especially for you! πŸ’œ πŸ€—

  5. I am one of the empty chair families this year, but we will gather with the rest of our family, cousins and grandkids and even a friend or two, and say a prayer not only for our lost one but for ourselves as well. We have so much to be thankful for every day. Your blog inspires me!
