Loss During the Holidays

For many of us, particularly those of us who have suffered the death of a loved one during the holidays, this time of year can be most difficult.  Sometimes when everything is under control, a story, a memory, a song creep up on me and a “bitter sweetness” fills my heart reminding me that the empty space in my heart that used to be filled by my special someone is not so empty.  If you know someone who has suffered a loss this year or in years past, why not drop a card in the mail or call them up to show them that you are sending them some sweetness to counter act the bitter?  Merry Christmas, Happy Chanakkuh, Happy Kwanza and a safe, happy, and healthy 2012 to you all.
