These are the blog entries for the selected month.
For most people, this is a period of time devoted to family, people we love, and celebrations. What if this upcoming holiday season won't bring those things? What if this upcoming holiday season means a series of firsts without your wife, sibling, child, or any other person whom you loved deeply?
For many people, the holiday season is a special time marked by celebrations and gatherings with family and friends. However, those who have experienced a loss often find it to be the most difficult part of the year.
The greatest gift you can give your grieving child is not a present, but your presence. Even in their pain, kids need moments to just be kids and be held. They need to see the Christmas tree replace the hospital bed. They still want to enjoy opening gifts and gathering with family even if someone they love is missing.
Mountain Valley Hospice is giving away Christmas trees to those in need.
Your television, your social media and your friends are all encouraging you to "get into the season" and "be merry and bright." However, you might be having a hard time embracing the holiday season this year, especially if you've recently lost someone near and dear to your heart.
