Jennifer, I so understand... it is hard to hear the carols, see the families together,...it is so hard and so many just do not understand. I am so glad to have found this forum where we can share our journey together. Here, I feel understood, not judged. As much as we hear time will heal, that will not ease our pain this Christmas. But I am here to chat when you need an ear. My heart and prayers are with you. Hugs.
Hi Jennifer... I just came across your page and wanted to say I'm so sorry for all your loss & sorrow. I have found some comfort and practical suggestions in the scriptures. Maybe you will find it helpful as well:. Rely on friends (Proverbs 21:5); Take care of your Health; Be Patient with yourself (Phillipians 4:8&9); Get back into a regular routine; & Do not be overly anxious (Matthew 6:25-34). If you need to talk or I can help in any way please let me know, I live locally here in Hesperia.
