Holiday blues

Friday, November 16, 2012

This is the first holiday season since my Gram passed away in June. The holidays just seem like a reminder that I am without one less family member and all I have left is my parents, aunts and uncles. Once they are gone then I only have my brother, his family and my cousins. I feel like an orphan right now. The reality has just been weighing so heavy in my mind. I try to just push through but lately it has just been too hard. I pray to god to give me the strength to make it through this hard time.

    I'm very sorry for your loss and that you are sad. :( My grandfather, stepdad and three of my uncles have gone and I think of them all the time, but its always worse during the holidays. Sending you big hugs, love and peace! I can be really hard to try to find something to put a smile on your face, but just remember all the good times that you had with your loved one. The things that they did to make you smile and laugh, the good things. :) Take care!

    My sweet husband went Home 3 years ago...this is a tender time. I keep a figurine of the little baby Jesus close to me during this season. It reminds me that because of Him, I will see my Beloved again.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Loss can take a long time to deal with. Just enjoy each and every moment of what you have left with those you have left. Take lots of pictures, capture moments that you will be left with in years to come. I wish I had done more of that. emoticon

It is difficult to lose a family member... and more so it seems around the holiday season...I lost my youngest son three years ago and he is missed every day but more so around the table. Time will soften the pain but you will never forget.

    I feel somewhat like that at times. I have to live in the now and enjoy it. The future can take care of itself until I get there.
