Day 17 Giving Thanks

Feeling sad. Feeling like it is so much work to figure out what happens next. I know that losing my Mother has been life-changing for me and my children. What I don't know is how to start to move forward. This weekend was sobering and this set of holidays will be another reminder of what I don't have any longer. I know that I must find things to be thankful for and that I have been doing...praising even in the pain.
  I know that worship isn't based on just feeling good...you have to worship no matter what is happening in your life. So I am thankful that I had my Mother for so long.  I am thankful that she was loving and kind and supportive. I am thankful for all the things she gave me...her time and her talents...her love and encouragement. I know that she has now passed the torch to me but the burden is just so heavy...so I will honor her in the ways that I can and I will pray for what is to come.
  Tomorrow I will be posting something a little more light-hearted! Thanks for being there for me!
