What do you miss the most?

What do we miss the most? Do we miss the sharing part of the celebrations of Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, or the New Year? Conversations among those who have lost loved ones center around “What do you miss the most?” once those pages of the calendar have been turned.  At least that was the situation the other day.

Do we miss them sitting at their place at the table?

Do we miss them helping with the preparations for the celebration?

Do we miss them on Christmas morning, opening gifts together?

Do we miss the kiss at the stroke of midnight?

It’s probably a little bit of all of that and more; calendars, clocks, any measure of time aside…

We just miss them.

While I miss the holidays and birthdays together, I really miss the everyday conversations and companionship. If I’ve had a bad day at work or one of the kids has called to cry on my shoulder, there’s no one to turn to for advice. Jim was such a grounded soul and I could always count on him for sound advice and help. It’s the comfortable silence riding in the car or watching tv or reading…the list goes on and on.
