: This will be the first holiday without my dad.
: He passed on September 1st, 2006.
: I feel I do not have much to be thankful for this year, only that he is in a better place and can watch over us. My mom is having the toughest time with all this. His birthday will be 12/18 and then comes Christmas. She is very sad an depressed. I try and console her that her husband is with our Lord and being taking care of, she is very faithful but is missing him so much. It will be a very tough holiday season, but I guess I am thankful for my faith and for the good Lord seeing us through this. I will continue to pray for comfort and for my dad, and also hopefully some contact from him.
: Have a good holiday to all.
Yes, the first holiday season can be very trying for those traveling the road of grief. Its with hope and faith that your father/husband is waiting for you and your mother with open arms, and that will get you through the holiday season. Your mother is very fortunate to have such great support within her son, and that alone has your father smiling with love on the Other Side.
May you and yours have a blessed holiday season.
