crying

‘Stop being sad, Heather. People would kill to have what you have.’ You cannot push grief away. It’s going to show it’s face, one way or another.’: Woman reminds us ‘joy and grief can co-exist, even during Christmas’

“Last night, I put up my Christmas tree and cried. It happens every year. For many, many years, I thought I hated Christmas. I’ve come to realize I don’t it. I hate the pressure of trying to hide my grief, for the comfort of others.”

‘I thought I could sneak into the living room. She felt my absence. I heard her scared voice call out for me and begin to cry.’: Mom shares touching reminder, ‘He’s still here, He always will be’

“In the times we think He’s left us and we’re all alone because we can’t feel His presence, He’s still right there. He hears our cries, and He’s saying, ‘Sweet child, I’m right here. I haven’t left you.’ She didn’t know I was only feet away.”

“My patience was pretty thin, and I snapped at him. What else did he want??? And then the tears kept coming. I took a longer look at that little pudgy boy in his pjs, crying over nothing. And I realized, more clearly than I have all week, that he’s not crying over nothing.”
