The First Holiday

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it, is like wrapping a present and not giving it ~ William Arthur Ward

I have  heard it say that the first holiday without your loved one is always the toughest.  I dedicate this post to everyone who, like me, is experiencing ‘The First Holiday’ without the one they love.

I am grateful to all our family and friends for helping me heal…Never pass up an opportunity to love!


Happy Thanks-Caregiving

  1. There are so many “firsts” after the death of a loved one. Just when you think you’ve reached and passed all of them, another meaningful occasion appears before you. The “firsts” are more difficult than the “seconds”. You’ll make it; I know you will.
