Getting Through

028You are doing well with your grief, then here comes Christmas. A flood of memories sweep over you and the strength you have seems inadequate for the days ahead.

For another, it has been several Christmas seasons since your loss. You somehow find the strength each year to make it through. Sometimes, it seems like you are growing distant to the sense of loss. You start to feel like you are forgetting.

Each one who suffers the loss of a loved one goes through the Christmas season with unique memories. Each grief is personal, yet each grief is the same in that someone close is gone. Each one has their own way of coping, of surviving.

As you remember your loved ones during these days of the Christmas season, remember, too, those around you who may need some help getting through.
