Holidays are not happy, family times for everyone

Good for you Carol! The holidays are difficult for many. My husband and I are bracing ourselves for Thanksgiving because our deceased daughter was born on that day. In her memory, I write articles for two grief support websites. I just wrote two books for grieving kids and a publisher accepted them yesterday. Like you and your husband, I try to make something good from a difficult experience.

@harriethodgson1 Kudos to you too, Harriet. We, of course, have not had the experience you have, but I applaud you for your writing. It is a wonderful way to deal with feelings. As a composition teacher, I am happy just knowing you have written two books and articles for grief websites. I hope you will share some of your thoughts on the Connect website, if you haven't already. It is a hard time to get through, but we have to do something for other people to mark the seasons and not allow ourselves to fall into the deep, sad abyss.
Bless you.
Carol
