  • Decorate for the holidays. Get a new hairstyle, new way of doing your makeup. Re-do your style a bit. Update it. Do little updates to your home. Little changes should help make you feel a little better.
    You can find a church, if you don't already go. Not a stuffy one, though. The one we go to, when we go, is very easy going. The kids have fun. And, they do things around the holidays, that get everyone involved.
    But try to not just sit home and wonder how he is doing. That will make your heart hurt.
