Losing someone we love is never easy, especially during the holidays. We often find ourselves reminiscing of times passed when our loved ones were still here with us.
The first years are the hardest, you see their empty chain and your soul aches for them to be here again. I have always found when I’m missing a loved one, I like to share stories of happy times together. Memories are always special, and are so important to keep memories alive for the children.
If they’ve lost a parent, an aunt, a grandparent or a close friend, talking about them truly helps ease the pain and keeps good memories and precious moments close to their heart.
Sometimes during holiday time, we feel we don’t have the strength to make it through. These feelings are normal, you’ve lost a significant piece of your heart. Don’t push yourself, but also don’t isolate yourself from others. Everyone heals in their own time.
Take all the time you need to grieve. Remember, you are not alone. God is comforting you during these trying times and you will make it through.
