The Christmas Holiday Season is usually a time of celebration and family traditions. Unfortunately, for many grieving people, this time of year can be very difficult. What our grieving friends and families need is our love and support, more than any monetary gift. While we wish there is something we could do to ease their pain, just being there with a listening ear and loving arms is all that is required.
When we feel as though we would like to give a Memorial Gift to ease the pain, a suitable gift is usually difficult to find. In this situation, it is not the cost of the gift that matters, it’s the thought and impact the gift will have to help them feel as though their loved one is close during the holidays. Remember Me offers a great selection of inexpensive Personalized Memorial Christmas Ornaments just for that reason.
“Forever In Our Hearts” is a sentiment that expresses the feelings of those grieving. We offer a few Personalized Memorial Ornaments with this popular saying:

OK, take a deep breath and a moment to help yourself find a way to deal with the stress, and sometimes depression, that will hit you during the next few days. Our Christmastime mentality puts us in high gear to have the Norman Rockwell family get-togethers with all the trimmings!
We set ourselves up for disappointment with such expectations! Years ago, I read an article that touched on this subject. I can sum up what I learned from this article in one sentence: Instead of trying to realize all of your expectations, just look for that moment or two that you can carry in your heart for years to come. I actually have practiced this philosophy for many years. I have a memory full of these moments!
We tend to miss what we don’t have. Unfortunately, we all are missing someone on Christmas. Many of us yearn for the presence of that special person who has passed away. I know I do. Sometimes, it seems impossible to get past this feeling. But, you can try…
Our memories are the most priceless gift that we possess. Take a moment to open up this gift and allow the memories to bring you comfort. Talk about them… chances are, others will treasure them as much as you do.
Halloween has passed and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. We all know what that means! Christmas will, once again, sneak up on us. Unfortunately, so many of us wish we could just skip over this holiday season. Why?
It is incredibly sad that many are dreading this holiday season due to the passing of a loved one. As many of you, I have personally witnessed a number of families struggles through Christmas… holding back the tears while putting a smile on their face as to not affect everyone else’s Christmas holiday. Through these experiences, this appears to be the biggest obstacle:
People do not know how to react or what to say: Do we mention how we miss that person who has passed away? How will that make those grieving feel? Is it better just to ignore the topic in order to prevent sadness?
This is my personal opinion: They are already deeply saddened. There is nothing we can do or say that will make them feel any worse… well, maybe there is… avoiding the topic. They want to feel as though their loved one’s memory is still very much a part of the holiday season.
As I mentioned, this is my personal opinion due to my unfortunate experiences. I can very well be wrong. Please share your feeling or thoughts on this difficult topic. Perhaps we can make someone’s holiday season a bit less painful.
