Holidays and Grief

Dear <<First Name>>,

In Canada, we are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend.

This holiday still reminds me of 
my nephew and the first time that he was missing at the Thanksgiving table. 

None of us was sure how to get through the celebration without him until his mother started to tell childhood stories. How he always was a little magnet for trouble although it often wasn't his fault in the first place. 

We all added our memories of a young man that had died too early. Stories about him being out in the wilderness counting migration birds, planting trees and bringing back the most stunning photographs and smells. Oh yes the smells! after having lived out in the woods without a shower for a month. 

You can imagine that the uneasiness subsided and we shared tears and laughter that day.

Have you already thought about the upcoming Holidays?

Anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays can turn into stressful times. Give yourself the permission to celebrate them in your own way. 

Nothing is set in stone. Get in touch with your family or friends and let them know how you want to spend those upcoming holidays. Don't leave it up to chance. 

Remember that you can change anything at the last minute. Be gentle with yourself and listen to your heart and inner wisdom.

Take good care,

Here you will find quotes that inspire my life.
