The Empty Chair

I wrote the following at this time a couple years ago:

Here we are again, another special day without you. I know you would want me to be happy, I will try to push through. I’ll do my best to smile. I’ll try hard not to be sad. I will think of treasured memories, in spite of missing you so bad. No matter what I do though, it still feels so unfair. Because despite my best efforts, I can’t ignore the empty chair.

  1. As I reflect on so many who are precious to me who leave behind an empty chair this year, I think about the families and friends who will grieve and have not been looking forward to the reality of this void. Yesterday, one of my hospice patients passed away. I will take part in his funeral on Friday. The list goes on. I pray that God’s comfort will sustain all those who find themselves grieving the empty chair.
