Every year around this time, I think of a trip I made through the mausoleum at a cemetery. I think about the family who put up the little tree outside a tomb with the banner, “Baby’s First Christmas”. I also think of the woman who had a still born child the week of Christmas. So many of us rush around preparing for a holiday which features a baby, that we might not take a moment to think of those families who mourn the loss of a child. Perhaps we know of a family who struggles throughout this time of year because of a loss of a child. Perhaps we know of a woman or family who desperately want a child, but are unable to have one of their own. Perhaps we can take a breath and remember that not all of us are in a festive mood. Make a place in your heart for those who suffer this time of year.
