Holidays are always difficult, especially the first one. I always handled such days best if I expected to struggle at some point. I allow myself to take some time to grieve, whatever that would entail. Sometimes I prefer to be alone, at other times I seek company. Grief changes over time and so does the way we experience and think about holidays. Thinking of you and your precious baby who would have been 6 months old.

Our pain has been put into words, placed into empty cradles, to remember that all our babies lived, that they mattered and always will. - Field of Cradles http://www.fieldofcradles.org/
