Grief and Holidays

Holidays can be so difficult, especially after a loss. As this quote states: our grief is as individual as a snowflake. We are all unique, our journeys unique, as is our own grief.

Here are a few ideas to help with the holidays. Because we are all so uniquely different, what may work for one person, may not for the next.

❤Find ways to remember

❤Do something in honour: light a candle, hang a stocking, include an Easter basket, make a donation in honour.

❤Change, or add traditions if need be.

❤Give yourself permission to feel how you feel. It is okay to say no, if your heart feels too heavy.

❤Be sure to make time for self care.

❤Express your feelings: journaling or creative healing are examples

Snowflakes to Remember

Healing Hearts, along with the support of our community, has provided  Snowflakes to Remember since 2017.

 Beautifully thought of, and created with love by Grada Drost and Healing Hearts. Snowflakes are all beautiful, intricate, and unique: much like the baby's we hold in our hearts.

These are unique, handcrafted crochet snowflakes, made especially for families of loss this Holiday Season. A precious ornament, to help honour and remember. Each one is packaged, with a beautiful card and a personal note, ready to be gifted.

If you know a bereaved family that could benefit from Snowflakes to Remember, please contact Healing Hearts. It would be an honour to gift one in memory of a beloved baby 💜

Much love,

Jenn, Healing Hearts
