Family pictures that lie

Someone in my support group IRL posted this and I thought some of you ladies might appreciate it. I've been thinking of you ladies and your families the last few days. http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/2317933

    Thank you for sharing.  I had a hard time getting Christmas cards this year.  Although we included our boys' names, we didn't include their pictures and I know that I will have to struggle with that for yeras to come.

    Thank you for sharing. I really love the photo idea they ended up going with. 
    We didn't do Christmas cards this year, but I know this is something I'm always going to struggle with. It's always good to remember you're not alone in the struggle.

  • That was so beautiful--thank you so much for sharing! I skipped cards this year...in fact those that have sent us cards are mostly not even opened yet. I feel awful and will open and save them, just like other years.

    I normally make and send cards around thanksgiving because I'm a teacher and that's when I have the time off to do it. I didn't do it until the week before Christmas. I put it off because I didn't want to take a picture without ds. Including his Ben Bear was my concession. I am adamant that my grief will not rob me of everything- I'm already without Ben.

    I opened cards from other families and then put them away with the mail. I never put them up like i have in the past.

    Same here. I usually put them up somewhere, but this year they just sat in a pile and they've already been thrown away.
