The Christmas dinner table feels empty
The Christmas dinner table feels empty without Andrew. He would have eaten turkey and ham until he felt sick, and then some. Tracy would have bought shrimp for Andrew and me, and between the two of us, we would have eaten the entire container. Then, at about 2AM, Andrew would have trekked up to the kitchen (in the middle of a video game marathon) and had another run at the leftovers. It would have been entirely expected that there would be no leftover desserts come morning! I miss him more than ever, but especially on days like today. I feel blessed that I was able to be his father for the time he spent on this earth, and know in my heart that he is spending his time in a better place.
