Hardship of the Holiday

“Grief, though a period of sadness and emptiness, is meant to be a spiritual celebration.”
In this season of happy holidays, for some of us who have lost loved ones during the year, it seems that celebrating after such a loss does not seem right. But really in this season of gratitude, not to celebrate is a dishonor to their memory. It is time to celebrate what we had with them, not what we do not have now. Show the ones who have left how much their time here was memorable and worthwhile. Bestow honor by spiritually opening to their memory, allowing their love to be displayed through the gathering of your family, passing on their gifts through stories and decorating the house so the brightness of the Christmas lights shine into the heaven and says “See you are remembered and you are loved.”
