Christmas Has Come and Gone and Here I Am

“Whew, did I miss it? Did I really miss the Christmas season going through without my loved one(s) that have died and left this world on a one-way ticket? Why did they leave me behind?

It hurts to the core of my very being and here I am in January – I’m not sure I can do this!”
