a little sentimental

we just celebrated all souls day, a catholic feast day remembering and honoring our dearly departed.

there is not a day that i don’t think of my own but i guess i’m being a little sentimental of late, thinking more and more of them now that major holidays are upon us.  my dearest mom would have been 93 had she not passed a week before christmas day many years ago.

my parents and my brother have gone back home to our Creator.  but i believe they are ever present in our lives.  i summon their spirits both in good and in bad times, cherishing fond memories and upholding the legacies they left behind.  as one priest said, our dearly beloved who have gone home before us don’t leave.  they stay connected with us.  it is up to us, the living, if we want the connection or not.
