Dec. 12th, 2004

There was a beautiful church service today. A service of Carols and Lessons. My favorite part was the youth choir (including A!) singing with a guest gospel singer. They sang a West Indian song about the nativity, and a gospel song called "Children Go Where I send Thee," which is an obscure Christmas song, but a great one. As a family lit the Advent candle, I cried to think how small our family had become.

It always hurts, and never stops really. However, over time the grief has an element of the beautiful. Sometimes.

Lessons and carols...The Brother loved Christmas. I like to think that now he celebrates it as it SHOULD be celebrated, but that's not much consolation.

Yes indeed.

I find that books on grief don't do much good, but that some books supposedly not about grief do. I will post the titles of some...

As he told me last night, "Duh, Mom, I'm a tenor!"
