Holiday Grief

It is always November that I sense my grief so intensely, (or I used to). The surge of Christmas preparations beginning and all gift ideas and recipes with the family sent me into a hurtful tail spin. I no longer have that pain in November as I have worked through it. There should be 4 of us at the Christmas table but we have 3 now.

However, saying that. The absolute BEST advice and thoughts is this about grief from Willie Nelson’s song:

Grief is not somethin’ you get over, but it’s somethin’ you get through.

Willie Nelson

When you lose the one you love
You think your world has ended
You think your world will be a waste of life
Without them in it
You feel there’s no way to go on
Life is just a sad, sad song
But love is bigger than us all
The end is not the end at all

It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through
It’s not ours to be taken
It’s just a thing we get to do

Life goes on and on
And when it’s gone
It lives in someone new
It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through

It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through
It’s not ours to be taken
It’s a thing we get to do
Life goes on and on
And when it’s gone
It lives in someone new
It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through
It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through

Songwriters: Buddy Cannon / Willie Nelson
