Take Heart

It takes both sunlight and darkness to make up a day.
Loss is an inevitable part of life.
It can be especially painful during the holidays,
And you will forever perceive that time of year
through the lens of that loss.
Yet, if we can make room for our grief, open our hearts to
new ways of observing the holidays, and even use this
precious time to honor and celebrate our loved one, we
may find a new beauty and depth to the holidays. They can
become a time when we experience our connection to our
loved one in new and satisfying ways.
