In this, a difficult time of year for those who have lost loved ones, I wish and pray that those who celebrate Christmas will remember the reason for the season - that God's son came to the earth so that we may have everlasting life...and will be reunited with our loved ones. For those who do not celebrate Christmas, I pray you will find peace in your own belief system. We are spiritual beings having a bodily experience, and we will all return to the Source (by whatever name) after our time here is done. Take care, all...Tim
This holiday season went by like a lamb January 03, 2009 1:16 PM
This holiday season went by like a lamb, for whatever reasons Tim. My niece passed in 2003 and it feels like an eternity and yet at times as if it happened just yesterday. Am I making sense? I just realized that she has been gone six years. peace upon everybody. I hope to see her again someday too. ---ginger

this was the first christmas after bill's passing, and, though i had been moving forward (not on, and to me there's a difference), that pretty much stopped dead in its tracks during the month of december. i was too paralyzed to do any shopping until the last minute.....but i find that i am beginning to perk up now. funny, because our christmases were usually low key, but i found that i truly was missing him more.
i am hosting my reading group this month, and so went into the spare room to start cleaning it, and found i couldn't remove any of his stuff....that was supposed to be his music room. instead, i wrapped my arms around all his shirts in the closet and buried my nose in them because they still smelled like him, and sobbed for the first time in several months. such is the fabric of life during a period like this.at this moment, all i want is to see him again. and yet i'm okay. go figure.
