December Blog Circle ~ Holidays After Loss


As part of our efforts at sharing stories and creating healing circles, we are launching blog circles here at TAN. Each month we will post a brief message introducing the theme for the month, and inviting you to participate in the circle. All you need to do is put your name and link into the Mr Linky widget at the end of this post, and your blog post can be included in the circle. Posts are welcomed throughout the month (and beyond if you write something later and want to share). We hope you will participate.

For many people, the holiday season is a time for rejoicing with family and other loved ones. After loss though, these festive gatherings can be shadowed by the feeling that someone is missing. Especially with the death of a child, many parents struggle with knowing that they will not be able to see that childhood excitement on Christmas morning, or pass along favorite traditions.

Have you been through holidays since your loss? What was your experience like? Can you give advice to other grieving families about books to read or traditions that may have helped you get through it? Please share your  experiences, stories and support by sharing your link here. (Click on the MisterLinky to share your link or see what others have shared)

I created this website today, and put every video and a poem I had up on my facebook page, as I go through the grief process, and healing process, more will come. I wanted a place I could remember my loss. Just a few weeks after finding out I was pregnant I lost my baby. I am so sad. And this website I wanted to go through music and poems, what no words can express how I felt.

I know how you feel. I had a miscarriage and 2 mtonhs later i found out i was pregnant again. I know until you hit that 12 week mark you are going to be anxious, try maybe taking a warm bath with some lavender scented bath gel before you go to bed to relax your body and maybe it will help you sleep better. When you wake up from one of those dreams, just take a few deep breaths, and i know it sounds kinda wierd but i used to touch my tummy (well the lil bump that was there) alot just to remind myself that i was blessed enough to get pregnant again and it would make me wonder what this baby would look like, what gender, what name i would give and eventually my anxious feeling would go away. I really hope this helps
