December's Deep Grief

Loss Amidst the Merrymaking


Again at Christmas did we weave
The holly round the Christmas hearth;
The silent snow possessed the earth,
And calmly fell our Christmas Eve.

The Yule log sparkled keen with frost,
No wing of wind the region swept,
But over all things brooding slept
The quiet sense of something lost.


Alfred Tennyson

Memories of birthdays, anniversaries, summer vacations and personal milestones are always there to make grief fresh again. Any first time occasion without our loved one sharpens our awareness of the loss. Visit The First Time Around for thoughts on other holidays and significant days on the calendar.

Because the shadow that hovers over special events can linger, I am leaving the holiday section on the site year round for all the seasons of your grief. Please visit any time.

A Word About E-mail: One way to decrease SPAM caused by Internet bots is to deactivate the live address link. You can still contact me by typing this address into your own e-mail program using @, a period, and no spaces, the standard e-mail format. Thank you.

 
Note to Visitors:
 
I read and respond to grief email at the end of each month when I update this site. If you need a more timely response, please visit a well moderated grief healing discussion group. It is free to use and requires registration to participate. I am not part of this group, but certified grief counselors are there to help, support and comfort grievers and those who love them. Because the counselors lost funding for the site, they are grateful for voluntary donations.

How complicated and individual mending is,
the time required for healing
cannot be measured against any fixed calendar
