Holiday Support for Those Grieving the Loss of a Child
The Compassionate Friends will hold its annual Worldwide Candle Lighting next Sunday, December 14th.  The national nonprofit, self-help organization “offers friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings.”  
They hold no religious affiliation and there’s no cost involved, except for purchasing your own candle. To learn more about this healing holiday ritual, visit: The Compassionate Friends. You can also visit my past December blog entries about this beautiful, simple ceremony. For a few quiet, gentle holiday moments, may you find peace in remembering.
My candle is ready and waiting, too.
