Holidays and Grieving

my friend RoseMary has a post on her blog about a little Christmas tree on the side of the road
near  where she lives, and it turns out it is decorated by a grieving daddy.

Now this is our first Christmas without our son John, and my friend Loni is
approaching the 5th anniversary date of her son's death. 

Truthfully this path is not one I would wish on my worst enemy, there are days I want to lay down and just go to sleep and wake up in the arms of Jesus.  If you know someone grieving the loss of a child just say a prayer for them.  The holidays are hardest.

I did manage to get up one of the trees I normally put up, hoping next week I will be able to put up the main tree. I know that Christmas is not about decorations, nor is it about all the doo dads and stuff, I love the Christmas season and decorating my home for the holiday has always been a love of mine I just dont have it in me right now..
I know this isnt a happy post..or a tip post..but it is my heart today...
God Bless You All!
