December 5 – Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?

so long, farewell, auf wiedersehen... #reverb10
As a pastor, funerals are a part of my life. I help families and friends say good bye to loved ones all the time. This year, I also acted in some ways as a family chaplain and buried two people in my husband's family. We really do have an important gap in the family Christmas now that his great-grandmother is gone. She was a tiny, tiny woman with an opinion as big as Texas. She let you know what she was thinking, all the time. She was ninety-nine years old and hospice care was such a blessing for her - pampering her and comforting her in those last couple of weeks of her life. We let go of her peacefully and with little pain in our hearts.
