January 2017 Bereavement Newsletter

A new year is upon us!  Where does the time go?  When I was young I hated it when someone said how fast the time went, for as I child, I didn’t believe it and I couldn’t wait for the years to pass!  Now it is sometimes just a reminder of what was.  It is sometimes hard not to wish those days and years back.  But, as we are so aware, we cannot!  We do, however, need to remind ourselves to make the most of today and pray for a happier tomorrow. 

For many of you, this New Year may only be a reminder of who will not be with you as you face tomorrow. A friend once shared four little words with me that might help to make a difference in your days.  They are “I have a choice”.  We can choose to worry and be upset at life’s circumstances, or we can choose to move ahead one day at a time, making our life count for something.  I hope we can do that together in the coming year.
