Guest Post: Bernice Dickey Tip for making it through the Holiday without your loved one – 911 List

Tip for making it through the holidays without your loved one

Create a 9-1-1 list of family and friends you can call when the going gets tough with overwhelming thoughts and memories.

You don’t want to “catch up” anybody new to your testimony. These are people who already know your story and can pick up where you are emotionally by just hearing you breathe on the phone! They know you, they know what going it alone means to you this year and they are willing to be there for you at the drop of a hat.

Your 911 list is your emergency contact list when panic sets in, when grief overtakes you, when loneliness in the midst of company resonates with you – these are the people who understand what you are going through without you having to explain.

Compile that name list, keep it handy, and on speed dial and let them know who else is on that list so that they can keep up with what is happening to and with you. You want your 911 list to know and talk to each other, they will pray for you, intercede for you and cover each other as they all stand by you on this grief journey.
