In spite of all the trials, illness and personal grief, God is still good, all the time, and we need to give him thanks, even when we lose that special person in our life.
Short, easily staged drama written by Betty Hamm.
Woman is on the phone in a monologue following which she is joined by two children. Could be then holding a dish towel and drying dishes or sitting in chair with checklist.
“//” in script reflects time for unseen sister on the phone to respond

Sample of script:

Mom talking on cell phone

Mom: Yeah, Mike emailed yesterday. He and Deb are not coming
//
I don’t know why. He just said they made other plans this year.
//
What do you want me to do Sue? Tell him he has to come? He is a grown up. He can decide how he wants to spend Thanksgiving.
//
Yeah well nothing this year is going to be the same. I already tried to make mom’s casserole. It was a disaster. You know she never wrote it down. I never realized how many things we would lose wither.
//
I know it will be tough but it will be ok.
//
No I am not calling Mike. If you want to know what I think, I don’t think he wants to sit through a dinner with dad asking every 10 minutes, “Where is mom?”
//
Bob said he would go pick up dad for me.
///
Honey, don’t cry. I know. I know. The first one is going to be the hardest.
//
Don’t say that. We still have a lot to be thankful for.
//
Well I do believe it. God is still good.
//
I don’t know why he took mom.
//
I don’t know why he left dad. But I still believe what He says.
