The Best Gift You Could Give

If you know someone who's lost a child recently ~ or ever ~ sit down this week-end and send them a Christmas note ~ email or snail mail, it doesn't matter ~ and let them know, as specifically as you can, that you remember their son or daughter.

It will be the best Christmas gift they receive.

thanks for the reminder.

This is true for young people who have lost parents as well. Teens and young adults most fear forgetting what their mom or dad looked/sounded like, and so many older adults simply stop talking about them, as though they never existed. sigh.

Just read this post.
My prayer for all of us is for God's sustaining grace to carry us through this sad and at the same happy time of the year.
