It was Christmas...........I was raised that Christmas was more of a religious holiday and for children....She grew up loving Christmas but from very humble means...... she so loved everything about Christmas..........I came to see it as "her holiday"...........and we made each one a celebration!

Since then, Christmas is just a day to get through..

I just spent my first birthday without my husband, alone. I don't think I will ever get my life back together. Any progress I make seems to be followed by a setback. Sometimes I think I would be better off joining him in the great unknown.

I understand where you are coming from and your heartbreak. Having said that, I disagree with the hopelessness of it all. Each new day is a fresh beginning. Take time to reflect on the happy times you shared together knowing that
love never fails, it springs afresh in each season of life. Love is eternal and forever. I know one day I shall see him again and our hearts will rejoice.
