Loss During the Holidays

abounds, surrounds 
frozen memories thaw 
pain and joy swirl but I savor 
them still 
-Wanda M. Toby

The holidays can be hard for many people because we have lost loved ones and while it is a merry time, the memories of those that are no longer with us can be bitter-sweet. Over the years, I have learned to remember the loved ones who are no longer physically with me fondly. Each year the sharp pain of their absence dulls a little more. We honor them by living beyond their expectations.
