Christmas is a beautiful time for fun and celebrations but there are a few of our friends who are bereaved and have lost someone during this season. Their Christmas festivities will never be the same. They may not feel any reason to celebrate Christmas. If you’ve got any bereaved friends please kindly reach out to them and offer some support. This could be just for a chat over a cup of tea or a little trip to the supermarket.

Grieving is not easy and it’s so painful. Writing this post takes me back to 2013 when my mum passed away in August which was just after my birthday. Everything in my life has changed since then. You can’t really get over grieving but you find ways of coping and carrying-on in life without your love one.  If you are sad and reading this post. I’ll tell you my little secret that kept me going when my mum passed away. When I think of her and the tears starts rolling down my cheeks, I get a notepad and write a beautiful letter to her.

I will share in another blog post some of the strategies that have helped me over the years. I do believe my mum is an angel watching over me and my family.
