Holiday Hope and Miracles: A Time of Remembrance

Dec 19th 2010 at 3:49 PM

by Elissa Al-Chokhachy

Winter holidays are filled with joy and celebration.  During this time, millions of people reverently pay homage to the miracles in their faith traditions and heritage.  Others celebrate meaningful relationships with loved ones, family and friends.  From festive gatherings, thoughtful exchange of cards, notes and presents to charitable gift giving, these activities bring much hope, anticipation and promise.  Holiday music magically transports us back through time to cherished moments and memories.  And, for those who have lost loved ones, this season is a time of remembrance.  It is also an opportunity to celebrate the special loved ones in our lives who have died.  
 
Holidays often evoke sadness for those who are bereaved.  Deceased loved ones are noticeably missing, and their absence trigger palpable grief, loneliness and sometimes despair.  Some grieving individuals need to talk about what they are feeling.  Others prefer to grieve privately.  Respecting the needs of each is important.  Rather than getting over a loss, the bereaved need to learn how to live differently in an altered world.  Things have changed.  Providing a supportive, nonjudgmental environment encourages the validation of thoughts and feelings.  Working through the feelings of loss and grief is a necessary step in the healing process.
