Is Christmas a hard time of year for you? If you or someone you love is grieving during this season, here are some ideas to celebrate your loved one and bring some joy back to your Christmas celebration.
A year ago I came home and the way my husband was acting I thought he needed sleep. He did this all the time. He wouldn't sleep then he would be in like a sleep but awake state. At 5:30 I got him in bed. I checked on him at 8:30 and he seemed to be fine so I went to bed. I woke up at 10:38 and he wasn't breathing right. Once again this wasn't the first time. Every time he went into the hospital this is what I woke up to. Luckily this time God made sure I had 3 great friends with me when I got the news that my husband died.
On the surface, yes, this post is about our fur child, a lovable Yorkshire Terrier my husband named Emjay, but underneath it's about the delicate intersection of grief and gratitude.
