Today is my mother-in-law’s birthday. She’s been gone a number of years and my husband has walked through the grieving process, so today is not a terribly painful day for him. We can remember the good of her life and laugh at the memory of family goofiness (if you made her laugh hard enough she would take her glasses off to wipe away the tears, it became something of a contest to get her to that point).
My reason for bringing up all this, is to remind you that your husband has both good and bad holidays to deal with. Be aware of those days and seasons that are difficult for him and be helpful when you can. Pray for whatever healing needs to be done.
