"Leaving with Dignity"
By charlie scerri
It really does not matter ,holiday season or not , leaving with dignity and blissfully would be my main aim if i were to be terminally ill... i feel my painting represents that feeling of dignity when leaving this realm . leaving this world peacefully and stress free is such of great importance .
When a pet dies, for children, this is often their first encounter with death. In an attempt to soften the blow, parents confused. I acknowledge my sadness, embraced it, and gave myself permission to feel and express this pain in a letter to my grandfather in heaven! Although not fully healed, this letter continues to be a vital part of the healing process.
Loving Touch.. Goodbye Dear Friend..
By Glyn Mariano
Saying farewell to a dear dear friend is always heartbreaking.. words leave as the body lets go. What to do but express my love with long gentle hand massages which make him smile briefly and bring our souls together in a silent room filled with love.
Telling his story.
By Zareena Qureshi
What matters is the communication to listen, learn and enjoy beautiful company.
Fun and Sadness
By Amy Kmit
During our holidays we cherish spending time with our daughter. After losing two friends to suicide last year we chose to simplify our lives, work less and make everyday life more like a holiday. We chose to enjoy more laughter on the swings. Life has its ups and downs like a swing and even holidays come to an end which is why I wanted to show fun and sadness in two contrasting pictures. My daughter dearly misses her dad after a holiday and while he has reduced his work hours the weekends and holidays never seem quite long enough together.
Its important to maintain healthy food choices and not get to carried away with treats & sweets!
