Thankful for Healing
Rather than cooking all morning and trying to figure out how to keep everything in one piece after an hour-long drive, we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving at Applebee’s – Rob’s favorite restaurant. It was funny because he knew exactly what he was going to order before we even left his apartment. I have never met anyone who appreciates anything and everything as much as my brother.
As soon as we left his place to go eat, he and I began to reminisce about the old days. We mainly talked about people/old friends from our hometown. Always fun (and interesting ) to take time and think about those people you once spent so much time with back in the day.
I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t visited my mom’s grave in years. I always used the excuse that I didn’t see the purpose when I knew she wasn’t there. The cemetery she’s buried in is pretty big, and my memory definitely isn’t what it used to be – so, I had to check with the cemetery’s superintendent for directions.
When I finally found her headstone, all I could think was – why had I waited so long?
Bad things happen to all of us – I know. The good thing is when you put all of your hope and faith in the Lord…things sure do change in your heart.
Hebrews 10:23 “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promises is faithful.”
