I am trying to write this monthly feature.
“Twelve Things I’m grateful for on the 12th” began 13 months ago. It is good to count my blessings.
But this month…trying to write it…
Forgive me, dear readers.
I am grateful for many things. I really am. But…
Today I grieve.
Today I remember my son.
Today I remember….
His pickup lines.
His stomping through the house.
His clumsiness off stage.
His beauty and grace on stage.
His lack of filters.
His phone calls.
His goofy smiles.
Mostly, I am remember that he knew Christ as Savior. He knows Him now face to face in all of His glory.
I miss him.
I love him still.
Two years ago tonight The Accident ended my son’s earthly life.
The Accident was on August 12, 2013. For months the 12th brought me to tears. Then, about a year later, I decided to choose gratitude and healing rather than sorrow. Thus “Twelve Things I am Thankful for on the 12th”.
