Enjoy author Becky Baudouin share her book Cancer, Faith, and Unexpected Joy. It's the story of her Mom's death and the lessons that she learned on how to live and die.

Of particular interest is: The holidays will be coming up soon. What words of encouragement would you like to offer those who are

facing their first Thanksgiving and Christmas without their loved one?

Expect

the holidays to

be hard

and

for

feelings of sadness and loss

to

be magnified.

A

lso expect God to

comfort and help you through

these difficult seasons

. It’s important to think about things ahead of time and

come up with a plan. It can be tempting just

to

play it by ear, but with the holidays being such a busy, stressful

season with lots of social events and

scheduled

family gatherings, we really need to be intentional about what

we would like these days to look like.

Some questions to consider are:

What traditions do we want to hold on to, and

wh

ich

ones are too painfu

l this year? Do we want to try

something new

,

such as t

ravel

ing

to a new location or go

ing

out for dinner or a movie?

Do I need to be with people

,

or do I need to spend time alone?
