The holidays are just around the corner and I have been asked for suggestions and advice on how to get through these next few weeks.

Honestly there is no magic wand to take away the pain you feel.

You grieve because you loved.

Conversations around the kitchen table or in the car ride to hockey practice brings me to encourage you to step boldly into those discussions.

Remember your loved ones, talk about the stories, cry that they're gone and laugh because you shared a life with them.

I get it... trust me... I get it it. Holidays can suck and hurt and bring out all those feels and tears.

Honour the space, take the time you need to acknowledge that pain. Then look around you see your children, your grandchildren, your nieces, your nephews, grandparents, dear friends and neighbors.

Look at the people who you love; they're grieving too. Share the stories, come together to enjoy a meal, FaceTime a friend, pick up your grandchild for a baking day and carry on the legacy of your loved one.

I don't have the answers why people die. Whether they are young children or our best friends or they were grandparents that lived long lives all these people made a mark, taught us lessons and we miss them dearly.

Together you wrote beautiful memories to guide you.

But one thing I know for sure... Close your eyes, put your hand on your heart and be still... They are there... Guiding you, loving you, walking with you. You are you because they were part of your life.

Never forget that.
