missing family members and Holidays

when you have missing family members, Holidays can be especially hard, I really really miss my Mom, and others, but yesterday was very nice, my family that celebrated with me is such a blessing, (thanks, y’all!) we overcome by focusing on the blessings of the moment, and being purposely grateful, there is healing in Jesus if you want it, sometimes it takes awhile, and His timing is best, but it is there, and He is faithful, I got through the day with no tears, and lots of joy, yay!
