Our First Holiday
Posted by Cliff Jr. under: Cliff Jr's Thoughts .
Although I’m sure Mom was having a great time worshiping Jesus in heaven yesterday, we as a family had our first Holiday without Mom. I think if Mom had been around we would have had a reason to all be home celebrating together, making dip and watching as our ghettohood put on a dangerous but interesting fireworks show of it’s own. But this year we all spent Independence Day doing going our own separate ways.
I had mentioned in my Mom’s Eulogy that spending Holiday’s together as a family were very important to her, and usually she was the glue that held the day and the family together. Needless to say it was a little wierd yesterday to spend the holiday apart from each other and apart from Mom.
Obviously the holidays are going to be difficult for us to navigate wtihout Mom’s guidance and zeal for family time, but no matter how much fun we don’t have on a holiday without her, it brings me comfort knowing that her joy and satisfaction is more complete than ours everyday and every moment she is with her Savior.
Keep praying for our family…
