Anniversaries and birthdays of loved ones who have passed can be a difficult time for many. They can be especially difficult during December, with the focus on spending time with family at Christmas.
If you are missing a loved one know that it’s okay to do so. This time of year isn’t happy for everyone all of the time.
Maybe light a candle to honour those you’re remembering, and incorporate it into part of your yearly routine. Honour the memories and feelings you still have. Honour those you love and miss.
