Remember…

rememberI wear this bracelet almost everyday.

I bought it on my brother Len’s 49th birthday. I think he would have liked that I bought something for myself that reminds me of him.

Of course my first thoughts were about remembering him:

Remembering him as Son, Brother, Father, Husband, Uncle, Cousin, Nephew….

Remembering his unique, crazy, funny and quirky ways….

Remembering his love and laughter, his life and his generous spirit.

But then I discovered that God had more for me in this word remember.

Remembering our community who loved us through the valley of the shadow of death these last 11 months.

Remembering our family and the friendships and love we share.

Remembering the life, love, loss, grace, laughter, longings, peace, ache, and blessings my heart holds.

Remember that even in sorrow, there are things to be thankful for.

Remember Gratitude

Remember Thanksgiving

And so, on this Thanksgiving Eve, I remember God and his goodness, even in difficult season, and I am thankful.

It is my hope you are able to remember and be thankful as well in these coming days and weeks ahead. You may need to travel through your sorrow to find your gratitude. It’s ok, I did too…

Happy Thanksgiving friends.

  1. I can’t begin to tell you how many times my thoughts have wandered over to all of you these days. Last year I was there with you and Marcia was trying to get her letter together. So much has changed… See you next week. Love to you!
