Tuesday Thoughts: December Dates
December is a wonderful month....but it holds two very sad dates for me, December 10th and 19th...the days on which my parents died. Miss Betty went to heaven on December 10th (2008), just two days short of her 85th birthday, which was yesterday. My Dad departed December 19th (1998), just days short of his 85th birthday on January 1st.
Many people focus on death dates, but I don't....I like birthdays as remembrances much better. Although it is sad to lose a parent at Christmas time, I am so thankful that their birthdays are also during the holiday season. Makes for such happy memories!
Here's to you, Mom and Dad! Love you and miss you....
