Thanksgiving and the Empty Chair

As this week begins all I can think about is how many of us will miss our loved ones on Thanksgiving and the empty chair facing us.

If you are among the many with an empty chair at the table this year, you are seen, heard, and understood here.

Grief is a challenging journey on a normal day, but when the holidays come around it becomes even more complicated.

As we approach Thanksgiving, many of us will look upon the empty chair at the table. The hole deep within our hearts will now be staring openly at us. Holidays are hard. If you are early on in your grief journey, you may wonder how you will get through the day.

The empty chair symbolizes remembrance of a loved one who is no longer with us. Some families even leave a place setting on the table in their honor.
