LIVING FOR LEZLIE

Holidays

Updated: Oct 10, 2019

Did you know there were holidays for things like donuts, lipstick and even pie?


August 30 is National Grief Awareness day but if you have lost a child, thats everyday.


Do we celebrate holidays? Well, depends on how fresh the grief is to be honest. I lost Lezlie a couple weeks before Thanksgiving and was not in the mood but, I did the holidays anyway. Then came Christmas, that was the holiday I honestly can say I did not care to join in. She loved holidays and that one especially.


Whats worse is she loved flowers and yet, there was valentines day then, her birthday. Her sweet 16. March had Easter and April had Mals birthday, and it seemed there was something every month that made the grief worse and worse.


But, I made it through them and am still making it.


Yes, we celebrate them but in our own way. Please do not force a gathering on us. Do not force tradition on us. We are grieving and you have to be patient.


How we celebrate may be how we cope. Give us time, be patient, we are grieving.


1 John 5:11 "And this is the testimony: God had givens eternal life, and this life is in his Son."

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart;  the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.  Those who walk uprightly enter into peace, they find rest as they lie in death.

Isaiah 57:1-2
