With the loss of my precious mom this past August, I am finding the holidays especially hard to deal with this year. I know there are others here that have lost a loved one recently (and some not so recently) that are dealing with the same pain.

This will be an international EMAIL swap where you can share memories of the person(s) you have lost, even a picture or two if you wish. You can email all 3 of your partners the same email, just use the Bcc field for their email addresses or copy and paste your message body into three separate emails.

You can share your feelings on their death, past holiday memories or traditions you shared with your loved one or beautiful memories you have of times shared or maybe a combination of all of that. .

I have found while its still hard to talk about without choking up, I have plenty to say and its been good to have the outlet of writing to express my memories, feelings and reflections. Writing has saved me from some psychiatrist bills! =)

This is a NO pressure swap, share as much or as least as you wish, it's your story, just join this swap knowing there are others that are in the same boat and are struggling through the holidays, too.

So, here's to us surviving the holidays without our loved ones and keeping their memories alive.


Swap requirements:

Swap requirements: I am going to open this swap up to newbies and swappers with less than 4.9 ratings due to the no cost and ease (just an email) of the swap but please do not add any additional stress on your partner by flaking. I will reserve the right to drop anyone who at the time of assigning partners that has not logged into Swap-Bot recently or appears to be inactive, thanks.

Can I share my memories of my grandma instead? Mom passed away shortly after my birth so I have no memories of her at all.!

Yes that would be fine!

thanks @tangledthreads

I think it would be nice to have it written in a letter as to a friend. Email is easier but a letter is nice to get in our mailbox. I may do both if it is okay with my receiver.

I'd love too to have it on a written way - and talk about my granma btw.

Since this is an email swap....would you like to have more partners? I could increase the number to say 5..or more if you would like....any thought on that or suggestions?

Muna 12/16/2009 #

Well to be fair in rating, I guess the partners should be 3 or 2. It allows more honesty and time to fully read and evaluate..

ladydy5 12/16/2009 #

I agree 3 is just fine.

Thanks for this swap. It was a great idea, and helped me over a difficult time of year.

Erna...you are welcome and me, too! It was good to be able to write some of my feelings out! xo
