I know this is good advice, Kayla, but I can't seem to put it in practise yet!Kayla said:I think gaps in our lives, seem to get filled up somehow, so try and make sure it is what you'd really like to do!
This I understand......it does ease with time I promise.......And another confession, when I read posts about parents doing this, that and the other - I just want to say - well make the most of it - at least you still have them. I know that it is wrong to think that, cos I have not forgotten the pain they are going through - because I used to want it to end too. But part of me feels angry and jealous.
Helen, I think you know (none better!) how hard Christmas always is for me. However many gaps there are in the family circle, there are always others that we have to consider. We have to go through the motions, put on an act, while inside our hearts are breaking.Amy said:.
I am already thinking about Christmas. I have spent most Christmases with mum and dad, especially whilst mum has been ill, and am already dreading this one.
