How are you navigating this spring holiday weekend? With Passover and Easter converging this year, many Jews and Christians are observing meaningful family rituals. Both holidays embrace themes of hope and history, and we greet each other with happy and sweet wishes.
The natural world also seems bursting with renewal, as lawns turns green and tulips start to push through the warming soil. Trees and bushes are ripe with buds about to erupt into full leaf, and more daylight hours encourage extra activities.
While these aspects of spring are certainly encouraging, they may also be challenging to those who are grieving. And as the season continues, we add Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to the list of holiday observances.
Do you have mixed feelings about the season’s special days? Or are you thinking of someone else who might? Here are a few links to articles that may be helpful. The last one is my annual Mother’s Day article.
Wishing you peace and healing this spring,
