9/19/2006 Our Heavenly Father, we who are here this hour give you our thanks for that opportunity and ask for your blessing upon our gathering. Be with and support those who are usually with us but now unable – help them to renewed health and strength and comfort those of us who miss them. Amen
Yes, we need comfort when we go down a memory path alone. The prop today is a teapot I purchased for my mother when I was in Denmark. It was shipped home. It took a month or so. It was a color to match her harvest gold kitchen. She loved it. But, it was “special”. She didn’t use it daily. It was reserved for company? I keep it on a shelf. But when I make tea, I use it or another given to me by my cousin and his wife. I hope they both have many tea stains by the time I leave this planet. They should not look perfect, even though they are special.
I miss you Mom & Dad, but I am comforted in using our special things.
