It's not "get over, it's getting past

Throughout my journey of grieving my child I have learned that you never "get over" losing a child, you get past it. You live through each day, sometimes it's like trudging through mud, other days it's like walking in the cold ocean water in the soft sand on a sunny day.

In this joyous holiday season, I am enjoying time with my loved ones, especially my husband and my daughter/ And except for setting up both of the children's trees, I have not thought sadly on my son. Lorelei loves all of the "tees" but she gravitates more towards the little blue tree all lit up for Trey. She is constantly taking his ornaments off and showing them to me.

Sometimes grief is like a Christmas tree, the joy of the ornament weighs down the branch but the whole tree is still beautiful.
