Holidays after a family loss are hard on everyone, and Céline Dion is no different. This Christmas will be the first she's experienced in many years without husband René Angélil in her life, and she's already bracing for the emotional impact.

"I cannot just live on like, 'I lost my husband; my children have no father,'" she told recently. "I have to stand tall and strong because this is my way of living: Stand tall, be positive, pick your battles, do the best you can and to live for today, not for tomorrow, for today, and know nothing is perfect, not everything you want will happen." Dion's husband of over 20 years died in January at 73 after battling throat cancer. She first met him when she was 12 and he was 38.

Fortunately, says Dion, their children René-Charles, 15, and twins Nelson and Eddy, 6, will help her through the days ahead as they return to their traditional holiday vacation spot in Montana. Celine also talked about it being nearly a year since Rene passed away."I can't believe it's going to be a year that my husband passed. I don't know when Santa Claus is coming, but if I had a wish to make this year, can you just tell him to take his time? I'm not ready! It's kind of a bittersweet moment and at the same time we need to really make the holidays really happy," she said.

"I feel thankful that he doesn't suffer and he doesn't have to worry because we got him. He got us and the spirit of the holidays will get us together again ... We're going to ski again all together and he will be there with us." We wish Celine good luck for her life ahead!! For more more news, stay updated on Gamenguide.com!
