Christmas 2022: Why, Oh Why, is Christmas So Hard???

I first shared this a few years ago when I really thought I should have reached a place in my grief journey where holidays weren’t as difficult as they were at first.

But what I realized then and what has been confirmed since is that every year has new and unique situations that make Christmas a fresh challenge each time.

As the ninth Christmas without Dominic rapidly approaches, I am pondering the question:  “Why, oh why, is Christmas so hard?” 

I think I’ve figured out at least a few reasons why.

I am a shepherd, wife and mother of four amazing children, three that walk the earth with me and one who lives with Jesus. This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.

  1. Your words have comforted me before but this is so exactly true. I thought this year would be easier than the last but not so. I lost both of my sons in January of 2021. Dan to a heart attack, age 40, and Jason to an alcohol overdose at age 37, on the same weekend while I was in the hospital recovering from surgery. Some days I cry so hard I think I’m about to die too. In some ways I wish I would . Both of my sons loved Christmas. We spent every one together. My heart is broken.
