To everyone who is a surviving caregiver,
This is my second Christmas withought my beloved husband. Somehow I really don't remember much about last year. But now it will be 2 years in March since he died and I've managed to go on. Christmas will never be the same, but I have 3 wonderful children and 2 great daughter-in-laws and 3 beautiful, healthy grandsons who will help me through it again. I still get tears in my eyes many times, but we had almost 46 years to celebrate together, so I try and remember all of those happy times we had.
No matter how hard we try, we will never forget our loved ones. I look up at the stars on a cold, wintry night & imagine that they are the windows in heaven and our loved ones are looking down at us.
So to all of you, let's be strong and make it through whether it's your 1st year alone or not. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!! "Carole"
