Christmas and Grief
« on: December 19, 2010, 06:09:51 PM »
Hi All,

We are rapidly approaching the 25th, the day on which we celebrate the birth of Hope eternal.  My heart is with all of you as yours are breaking.  It is a difficult time to be without our loves.  My wish for us all is that we make it through all of the "fesitivies" that are traditonal to this time of year, with the least amount of pain possible, remembering to focus on Hope.  It keeps us going.

Personally, I am trying to leave behind all that no longer fits for my life, and move forward the best I can.  It is hard when everything at this time of year is "family, family, family" when I really don't have one anymore.  But it is what it is and there is no shame in loss.  So I just enjoy the parts I can and try to ignore the rest, remembering that I always have Hope.

Peace and Healing,

Thanks for the post.  I needed that this weekend.  Had a rough patch on Saturday.
