Those who suffer from the grief due to the death of a child may often remember that child at this time of year. It isn’t unusual for the grief to be heightened with the coming of Christmas. I have heard of parents who still prepare a place at Christmas dinner for the child they mourn.
Many of us certainly love the Christmas season. I know I do. I have fun with my family and enjoy what the season brings. I am all mindful however of those who remember the children they would love to see and hold and play with again. If you know of someone who has experienced the “loss” of a child in however that loss may have come about, please take time to come alongside these loved ones and bless them with your company.
