Restoring tradition
Sudie Crouch
That first holiday after you lose someone you love is so hard. Beyond the heartache, there are the memories and traditions that haunt you. Things you took for granted for years somehow become moments that can never be replicated, no matter how much you try. The first holiday after Granny passed away was Mother’s Day. Her birthday usually falls the same weekend, so Mama and I were doubly lost. Thanksgiving, it seemed, was particularly painful, maybe even more so than her birthday had been. This was Granny’s big day and, in the years prior to her passing, she had not been able to prepare her big feast the way she normally did.
