I think at first it did mine but now as time has passed it seems a perfect opportunity to remember so many good and fun things. How about you?

That is true; I love since coming here being able to share my parents in story and poem. It is healing I think.
I understand Theresa completely and I think it is good to let our grandkids get to know their grandparents through us. Mom loved my grandson Shane & the only one she saw the last couple years & he only has a vague memory of that so I refresh
Yes, that is good to do, and when I went to see my grands the other day at lunch, I saw my mother's little Christmas decoration of a musical snow village with ice skaters, and that was a good time to share of my mother.
I think it gives our grands a deeper family feeling and as long as it interests them it is something nice for us too. I love talking about my loved ones gone. It brings them back for the time we spend remembering. It is a great comfort.
So true, it is very comforting to me too. Since we were blessed in this life to have such special mothers, we do need to share about them to all other in the family who may have missed out on the blessing of knowing them.
I agree with both of you. Festive occasions are the special times when all of us gather at one place in family and we should think of our old people and remember their love and contribution for our being in this happy moments now.
I am always happy to know those who love Jesus and I certainly do and that is what Christmas is about but I also try to not forget to honor Him all through the year & I write about Him in hubs as I am inspired to. Honor is all we can do He did it
I have never lost a spouse so I can't say I know how you feel; only speculate and know how it affected my mom when Dad died. Sometimes thinking of others though as you say you try could be the best thing for you. I hope your burden will lighten.
A great way of putting it.
It is not a matter of remembering. We experience it. So, it is not so easy to forget as and when you want, and then remember whenever you want to remember. It is not like that.
I am glad to hear that too. Our loved one would never want us to be sad as we wouldn't them if the roles were reversed.
