Grief: Coping with the Holidays by Jody Neufeld
This first suggestion of a book for Christmas may seem self-serving but walking through the holidays when you are struggling with grief is beyond difficult. I know this because my 17-year-old son died in September and that Christmas was a holiday of tears. Whether you are grieving the death of someone you love or the loss of a job or marriage, grief can be a huge dark cloud that covers every aspect of your life. Traditions that once gave such joy, may instead bring days and events that seem too heavy to get through. What to do?
This book talks about some things you may be experiencing or someone you love may be experiencing. It has some very specific suggestions for new traditions or alternatives to activities.
