Time Frame > Shock Wears Off, Reality Sets In ( 6 to 12 months)



When you're a young widow holidays become a day to through not celebrate...

You are so right Winnie.  We get through them one day at a time.  I still don't like holidays anymore.
Hugs to you.

This year we just really avoided doing anything for Father's Day because it was too hard.

Captains wife:
Holidays, especially in the beginning, are so so hard. Over time, I have tried to change what I do on holidays (for example, I volunteer and deliver meals on Thanksgiving, my son and I go away somewhere fun for the 4th of July) and that has helped. I try and see my family (and his) on and around Xmas with my son so we aren't alone at home.
