Thanksgiving Greetings to Family and Friends ~The Empty Chair Prayer ~Precious Memories

Many of us will be missing loved ones during this holiday season.

Perhaps you have seen this Empty Chair Prayer

Oh, how my mother loved Thanksgiving.
This was the last year (2009) she traveled
to spend the holiday in our home.

Her "gentleman friend" would bring her to stay with us,
while he traveled on to Minnesota to visit his son.

Here she is with Aunt Olivia and Hubby's Mom
enjoying some pumpkin pie and more coffee...

...while the younger generation cleaned up the kitchen.
We would always sing Christmas Carols when we did the dishes on Thanksgiving.

Our daughters and their husbands were just here 
in August for Wedding Week,
so cannot be here for the holidays this year.

I cherish my memories of the Thanksgivings
and Black Fridays that we were able to spend together!

Hugs and prayers for all of you 
that are missing loved ones this holiday.

Cherish the time you have with family and friends.

Take care,
~Natalie
