Grief is hard on a regular day, but holidays are the worst.
Does the picture above feel familiar? Are you standing alone in the middle of giant loss? You don't have to be alone. In fact, I'm begging you NOT to be alone with your grief after the holidays. It's just too hard.
Maybe you had friends and family around for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Even New Years. But here it is mid-January, and the celebratory crowds are gone.
You are not alone.
I feel your pain.
While we were blessed to be around family for Christmas, they holidays were also difficult. We have family members who have passed, and their absence was definitely felt. Some traditions were overlooked. Some new faces were present. And amid the hustle and bustle of airports and family meals, there was an odd mix of joy and sorrow.
It doesn't matter where it came from:
- death of a loved one
- loss of a job
- loss of a close relationship
- natural disaster
- loss of a dream
- loss of a pet
God is here for you.
