“How do I make it through the holidays without a loved one?”

Ruth Williams

The Gallatin News Examiner and Hendersonville Star News recently published a guest column by Alive Hospice Grief Counselor (and blogger!) Ruth Williams. The column gives tips for coping with holiday grief.

An excerpt:

Having a person missing from the traditional family scene may draw your attention to what isn’t instead of what is. Instead of pretending the loss isn’t real, sometimes it may help to share stories about the person now absent from the family photo. Everyone has a unique perspective on the legacy of the person who has died. And, yes, tears (and occasional laughter) can be very healing!

How do we cope in the middle of a season filled with seemingly endless events and celebrations ‚Äď public, private and faith-based?

See¬†the answer to Ruth’s question here.
