How Great Thou Part

There is nothing more joyful than the holidays surrounded by the ones we love.

But life is an ebb and flow and inevitably we suffer loss or relocations or relationships end and much more.


And what was once a day of exuberant thanks and holiday folklore can feel lonely. 

The following are 15 Quotes to Comfort and Inspire During Difficult Holidays:
