As much as I hate the mashup of Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas that assaults my senses every time I walk into a store, it IS a reminder that, like it or not, the holidays are coming.
I wrote these posts a few weeks back so that grieving parents and their families could begin to think about and make plans for year-end celebrations.
I know it’s hard-it continues to be hard for me as I approach the third (!) set of holidays without one of my children at the table.
But it is harder without a plan.
So here are links to the posts. I pray they are a small help for heartbroken mamas and daddies:
Grief and Holiday Plans: Working Out the Details
Grief, Holidays and Hard Conversations
Grief and Holidays:What the Bereaved Need From Friends and Family
Practical Ideas for Dealing with the Holidays after Child Loss

Whatev er your needs are, do it. Do not worry about anything else now. Rest your mind. Love, Mama.
