The Christmas Season is considered to be the best time of year. For many, it is a time of spiritual reflection…a time to celebrate the Christ child. For many, this time of year is when spending gets more out of control than usual…when the coming year is dismal with new bills coming in.
For others, this Christmas season is anything but the best time of year. For them, the best time was when their spouse, their child, their loved one was here. For these, this time of year is a sad and lonely time. Their grief is the hardest as the Christmas holidays come near. They often have to be strong for others who depend on them. They somehow smile through their tears as each day passes by.
My heart goes out to those who grieve this Christmas. I know what it is to miss your loved ones, especially this time of year. I understand your grief. Perhaps, knowing your not alone can make a difference. I hope it does for you.
