It's the time of year when we're contemplating Thanksgiving menus and realizing the days left until Christmas.
It'a also one of the times, when we become acutely aware that there's an empty space at the table or under the tree.
Maybe Mum or Dad isn't there this year to carve the turkey.
Maybe one of our "little ones" isn't unwrapping presents beneath the tree.
Maybe one of our "Fur Babies" isn't begging for table food or playing with the wrapping paper.
Most of us have a reason for dreading the holiday season and most of us have someone or something that is sadly, absent from it all.
Most of us are aware of our broken hearts and sadness.
It's just so very hard, because most of us don't know how to, or want to talk about it.
Some things to consider:
Everyone has their own reaction to whomever is absent - every relationship is unique; no exceptions!
It may be a recent loss or it may have happened years ago - the pain is still there and
"Time" doesn't heal the wounds - we just find ways to cope with the pain - it's still there and very raw
Traditions are often hard to deal with when there's someone missing - It might be time to build some new ones to honor our absent loved ones in a way that is comfortable for everyone.
It's hard enough to deal with the holidays let alone dealing with a broken heart, as well
A Pop-up Healing Sanctuary may be just the thing to help you get some relief from your grief and some inspiration for some new traditions and ways to navigate the sadness during the holidays
