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.❤ Melanie

One thought on “Christmas 2022: Why, Oh Why, is Christmas So Hard???”
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.
