This is one of the busiest times of year. Between Halloween to New Year’s Day, the hustle and bustle is never-ending. That is the reason it is so important to carve out some time to the person grieving. The holidays can be lonely, overwhelming, confusing, and grueling for those who are mourning the loss of a loved one. They probably need to share how they are coping and handling this time of year. It can be a series of texts, a phone call, coffee or a meal. Let them know you are there and schedule a time. Do not wait for them to ask for your time because they know it is scarce. Be proactive.
