This is a powerful and moving blog post about honouring grief at Christmas. For those of you who have lost a loved one I highly recommend this article. It will give words to your grief and it will guide you through these Christmas days. We honour each and every one of you and the people that you mourn. They are always with you in your heart and in your memories. Hope that you find a place for your memories of and love for – your loved one this Christmas.
Seek gratitude. I know this is tough. But try to find one daily thing to be grateful for throughout the holiday season. Write it down, photograph it, share it on facebook. Whatever. Just look for the little things.
Remember, it is okay to be happy – this doesn’t diminish how much you love and miss the person who isn’t there this holiday. Don’t feel guilty for the joy you do find this holiday season.
