This time of year can be an emotional time of the year. It can be full of excitement and joy or can consist of pain and hurt. Sometimes, both extremes can exist at the same time. The holidays are a wonderful time to be with family and watch the excitement consume everyone. It’s also a time that you feel loss or hurt more than ever.
