I'm struggling a bit myself tonight. It's not easy, no matter how old or how recent your loss is, there is always that ache there.

Hope you all have a peaceful Christmas.

Thank you magicOC, I'm sorry you are struggling too, its a very tough time of year. I lost my darling Dad four weeks ago, and I am heartbroken, it hurts so much sad

Much love to anyone else suffering from a loss.

I'm finding it very hard this year but lost my parents years ago. Having a moment right now when I should be getting on with a wrapathon.

Kurri, so sorry for your loss sad I wish you peace and strength to get thru it, it's all still so raw for yo.

Jingle, it's 16yrs today since my mum died, remember it like it was yesterday. sad My dad has been away a few years too. This year for some reason it's harder. I really don't know why????

Your entitiled to have "your moment". I still have to get the wrapping done too. Maybe putting on the Christmas carols won't be such a good idea.

Peace to you too Jingle.

Magic, Kutti and Jingle - thinking of you this evening.

Thinking, too, of my mum and dad and of Christmases past, especially the childhood ones. Mum went to a lot of trouble, we all went to Church, and Dad always managed, at lunchtime, to talk about the poor, especially in Africa, and to wonder out loud how there could be a God who let all that happen. And Mum would speak sense (as well) - and the family would be together - imperfect but complete.

Let's remember our mums and dads and cherish those still living.

Love to all of them and to us. xxx
