Thanksgiving came and went. No Sam. My son lives a busy life, and has a job with many obligations. At family functions, my brothers and sisters will often ask; "Where's Sam?" They know the answer. There is one thing that they don't fully understand.
I raised my son to be happy and independent. Although I miss him terribly when he is not here, I am thrilled that he is successful in both his personal and professional life.
Christmas and New Years came and went. No Sam. He wanted to be with family, but obligations kept him away. The day did come when he was able to make the 6 hour trip North to see us. We had a great time!
I have learned to trust God with my children, and to enjoy each day as it comes. I can't compare the special days that I'm given with what other people get. If I did, I'd be depressed at times, and then on top of the world at other times. I'd rather appreciate the life that God has given me, and let Sam live his own life. Sam is a caring Christian man with a wonderful wife. I can celebrate Sam for who he is.
