Rob and Cindy, their pain and misfortune and Christmas

Rob and Cindy were unable to celebrate the holidays after their seventeen-year-old son died. They understood that for the next few years, the holidays would be unfixable, so they decided to spend the time serving others….They went to the local homeless shelter and served dinner. On Christmas they helped wrap presents for local foster homes. In the end, their action served more than they had expected, because it took their mind off the intensity of their loss and helped them see that they were not alone in their pain and misfortune.   

From the book “On Grief and Grieving”

By Elizebeth kubler-Ross and David Kessler  (p.142)
