Merry Christmas…and the empty chair…

Merry Christmas!!

It’s a beautiful Christmas day…especially since we are surrounded by family and looking forward to a trip next week to visit our VA families.

Missing is Papaw, Rich’s father. While his chair is empty in our house…his memory lives on. I think of him every time I make the spaghetti sauce he taught me to make. It’s probably the only thing I cook without a recipe…but adjust ingredients based on taste. This has become our traditional Christmas meal.

As you enjoy this Christmas with your families, remember the empty chairs with love & gratitude for their presence in your life.

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~Burton Hillis
