I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. It's always hard, but seems so much harder near the holidays, the shorter days, and when you are missing other loved ones so much.

Loss of a friend, of family is so difficult no matter the time of year. Have it fall when the rest of the world is telling you to be happy and festive seems extra cruel. Hugs Linda.

So sorry - sometimes one bad thing piles on top of other bad things and it's hard to keep one's equilibrium. Let it swirl around you and take the time away you need. Deep breaths, too, Linda. But remember to exhale.


Oh, sorry Linda. The grayness lately isn't helping. :( Take care.

Managing the grief that accompanies losses like those isn't easy at any time but it's all the more difficult during the holidays. Giving yourself the time to feel and process those churning emotions is important. Take care, Linda. (((HUG)))

Thanks to everyone for your thoughtful and encouraging comments and emails.

I'm so sorry for your several losses, the one fresh and raw, the others the holidays won't let you forget. May you soon get the sunshine you crave.


Missing loved ones at holiday time is especially trying. Remember and cherish the good times you shared with them. They'd like that.
