Help­ing deal with grief of loved ones over the hol­i­days

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

WHEN you’re liv­ing within grief it’s hard to han­dle all the dec­o­ra­tions, fun and ac­tiv­i­ties that are a part of the sea­son of Christ­mas.

Feel­ing numb and empty in­side and sim­ply not “get­ting into the spirit” is un­der­stand­able es­pe­cially when ev­ery­one else seems to be fes­tive and happy.

No one can re­ally make any­thing bet­ter for you or change how you are feel­ing.

Bette Phillips and Carol Stevens are the fa­cil­i­ta­tors of the First Steps Grief Sup­port group based in the Strath­bo­gie Shire, and this year they are de­liv­er­ing some­thing spe­cial.

Along with the gen­er­ous sup­port of lo­cal fu­neral di­rec­tor, Brod­er­ick Floyd they are or­gan­is­ing a Christ­mas Ser­vice which will be held at the Mark J. Floyd Chapel Bin­ney Street Euroa on Thurs­day De­cem­ber 13 at 7pm.

Some­times get­ting to­gether with oth­ers and spend­ing some time amongst peo­ple who care and are in the same sit­u­a­tion can ease it a lit­tle.

Ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend the ses­sion and if you have any queries you can phone Carol on 0413 883 487 or Bette on 0409 788 883.
