Missing You

The holidays can be difficult for people who have recently lost someone.
Reach out to those who might be hurting or lonely over the festive period.

The hardest part about losing someone,
isn’t having to say goodbye, but rather
learning to live without them. Always
trying to fill the void, the emptiness that’s
left inside your heart when they go.


I made myself a snowball,
As perfect as could be,
I thought I’d keep it as a pet,
And let it sleep with me.

I made it some pajamas,
And a pillow for its head,
Then last night it ran away,
But first – it wet the bed!

~ Shel Silverstein

It came without ribbons.
It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes, or bags.
Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas means a little bit more!


The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest is all gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.
Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain.
So open wide the doorway-
Thanksgiving comes again!
