Go out and look for ways to bless people, at stores some elderly are tired from shopping, they could use help with their carts, or putting things in their trunks. Even at the grocery stores they can't reach up high to get food. Do for others and you will feel better :)
I had horrific holidays as a kid as a result, I hate all holidays! I mean, horrific! Not talking about not getting what I wanted either! I'm not going into details here but, it was bad! I tried to make them good for my kids, though! I wanted them to have better memories then I did & I'm sure they do!
