A hug is a great gift – one size fits all, and it’s easy to exchange. ~Author Unknown

Happy Sunday,

I wanted to re post a blog that I published last year, entitled Communicating During the Holidays and Grief.


If you are loving someone who has lost a special person in their life, please take the time to read my post. Know that you are needed now more than ever, even if it is just to hug someone and let them cry out the hurt.

Christmas is all about giving, a special time of year where we take the time to stop our busy lives and think about others. We make our lists, and bake our cookies, and we try and find the perfect presents.

My challenge for you is to understand that the greatest gift that we can give another is our time and love. The greatest gift we can give is to let someone know they are not alone.

This Christmas, look around your life and give people what they need the most.

Oh yeah, and you can still bake the cookies.
