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.
