Time for the happy face to go again...

And another Christmas without my beautiful son.

No one will mention him, no one will see the presents I bought him and donated to a charity, no one will be there when I take his Christmas cake and nip of whisky to the cemetery today and no one will see how I really feel tomorrow.

He would be 32, that's 31 Chrismas' without him. His twin sister doesn't remember him my other DC never knew him although they know about him.

I can cope most of the year, but Christmas is for all the family, and he's not there. I should have a daughter in law, more grandchildren.

So today I'll visit him, give him flowers, cake and whisky...tell him all the news, what his young nieces and nephews are getting from Santa and cry when I have to leave him again. Then I'll come home, put on the "happy face" .

I'll also say a prayer tonight for all the other parents who also have a "happy face" and a sad heart.

I am so sorry OP that you don't have your lovely DS with you. thanks My thoughts are with you, and everyone else who is missing someone. It is so bloody unfair!

MrsPresley - I'll toast your beautiful DS tomorrow, too.

I never fail to marvel at how strong love is and how it survives even death and even the passage of time. Thinking of all our loved ones who we won't see tomorrow (as such) but who are truly alive in our hearts - for always.

And if I go,
while you're still here...
Know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
--behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
--both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.
