On Monday’s blog, a woman named Delores posted a comment that touched my heart and the hearts of many other readers. It read:I had a very special valentine until 2-26-08 then the love of my life my husband was killed in an accident. All holidays are so very difficult to get through but valentine is a little more difficult as the last valentine card he gave me was still on my night stand and still is. I like your ideas. It may be late to start something big this year but I can do something special for me. Maybe I can learn to love myself again. Then I can show love to all around me. Thank you so much for your kind words. Have a great day!Then, this morning, I noticed many posters talking about how this time of year reminds them of their failed relationships. Oh man. My heart breaks for everyone grappling with loss and loneliness during Valentine’s Day or any holiday. Just yesterday, my co-worker sent around this video of Johnny Cash’s daughter, Roseanne Cash, on dealing with grief. The meditation she shares is very healing, and I hope it helps you no matter what season of life you find yourself in today.

Read the full interview here. Wishing everyone lots of love. May God bless you and bring you peace and grace today and every day.Read More: How to Get Through Grief and LossMeaningful Remembrance Ideas for Holiday Grief
