The holidays were always Mitchell's favorite time of year. To him, it was a chance to snuggle with mom and dad just a little more, a time to look out the window and watch the snow blow by as the winter wind howled, and it was always a reason to make his favorite hot chocolate.
Over the years, our family has developed some traditions that have served us well and I want to share them with you. Yes, I carry the weight of grief this holiday, but I am also filled with gratitude for the time I spent doing what mattered most to me ... spending time with my family.
You can read about these traditions under seasonal/merrychristmas!
I hope by sharing what we have done, you'll have ideas that help you make memories of your own.
To those who struggle with grief, disappointment or discouragement, I care. I know how long and cold the winter nights can feel. May your memories, new or old, be a light to your heart and a warm hearth for your soul.
NOTE: This image is a preview from a Christmas eBook we're going to have ready just before the holiday. I'll keep you posted when that book is available.
