As the Holidays draw nearer, as I sit here listening to Stone Sour's "Through Glass" I can't help but to notice there are family and friends that won't be here again this year. Be it illness, an accident, or a suicide, there are loved ones that, if I'd bothered to decorate for Christmas, won't gather around the tree and no matter how long ago nor how recent the loss; it's heartbreaking to realize they're not here anymore. Take it one day at a time, and it doesn't seem so bad.....right? How could anything explain away this feeling? Although now here physically, they're around in spirit.
