December – a season of Hope

for Forrest and AnnieRainbow support group members take time in December to share stories of hope and healing and to talk about new or adapted traditions that have grown from our experiences with loss. These photographs represent our love for our children. Some of us create new traditions over the years, with full knowledge that there is no singular “right” way to heal. It is up to us to find our own way, but with the support of others, it can be somewhat easier and far less isolating.

I will Light Candles this Christmas 
by Howard Thurman 

I will light Candles this Christmas;
Candles of joy despite all sadness,
Candles of hope where despair keeps watch,
Candles of courage for fears ever present,

Candles of peace for tempest-tossed days,
Candles of grace to ease heavy burdens,
Candles of love to inspire all my living,
Candles that will burn all the year long.
