2. You're more than welcome.

And you're right -- it's going to be really hard, but you will get through it.

We lost my father-in-law last year, and my dad this summer. The next six weeks are going to be pretty awful. I keep reminding myself - and my mom - that no matter how bad December is, the calendar page WILL eventually turn to January, and we WILL muddle through it. I'm not sure how convincing I am, but it helps to say it, anyway.

Did you look at the post about surviving the holidays? I think I'm going to print it and put it on my refrigerator door - 'cause I may have written it, but that doesn't mean I remember what to do when it's my own grief that's thwacking me in the head.
