Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays and I look forward to it every year. It brings me so much joy; the presents, the cookies, ham, I could go on forever. Although this time of year makes me so happy, it also brings me tons of sadness.
Almost every year for as long as I can remember my grandpa would come over for Christmas and we would all have dinner together as a family. We would eat, maybe play some board games, and listen to the stories my grandpa had to tell. Sadly, my grandpa passed away two years ago.
As Christmas Day creeps closer and closer I can’t help but to feel sad. Knowing that he won’t be sitting at the dining room table with us is saddening. But I also feel so much joy to know that he’s spending his holidays in such a beautiful place and watching down on us. I’d give anything to have him here with us but I know I can’t always have what I want. I’ll be saving a seat for my favorite man at the table.
