It's been said that the hardest time for people who have lost a loved one is the first time of a special occasion that they once had with their dearly daparted. Here are a few of my thoughts of the hardest times.
Thanksgiving is a day where people are thankful for what they have on this earth. For someone who has lost their loved one recently will have moments of dispair thinking about the last Thanksgiving when their loved one was still with them
Christmas is a day that is filled with watching all our loved ones open presents, and enjoying all the love, and laughter that always feels the air on this special day. Many people go to church on this day and celebrate Christ's birth. This has to be a hard day for those that have lost a loved one recently. They'll soon smile after they ponder about those moments of the years gone by. They can think about rejoicing in heaven with their loved ones when their day come to reunite with them in heaven on this special day.
New Years Eve, and New Years Day are all about the hope for better years ahead. Once again these day must be hard for someone that has lost a loved one recently. Family member should remember to keep the ones left behind with them on these day. This will help them feel more comfortable, and loved. They'll know even though they are missing someone that day, they'll also be thinking about more hopeful tomorrows.
Family reunions are another time when it must be hard when someone is left behind after the death of a loved one. They'll see many couples there, or other family members that have the same person with them that they have just lost beside them sharing in their special day. Once again help them feel like they are indeed not alone, and that they'll have much support from you in the coming months. Help them see all the chances they still have to be apart of the rest of their families lives.
The ones that are left behind when their loved ones have died, will have a moments of sadness when they first walk into a loved ones home that they uses to visit with the dearly departed member of their family. Remember they once sharing in these special time. They will heal, it just will take time, love, and tenderness.
Take the time to ponder on this list that I was inspired to write after the death of my father. My father taught us about the love for family and friends. Now, our family must help each other pick up those lonely pieces in our lives, and move on day by day doing the best we can to love and enjoy life.
