2. Here are the notes from last night’s online Hope for the Holidays Online Gathering Workshop. We cover these topics in detail in the above video session.

Hope for the Holidays Strategies

Self care

Ask for help and say yes

Realize it will be different

Ask your family what traditions are important and make a plan for those moments

Create a plan for important days

Ask yourself and/or your family for some new traditions that you’d like to try and schedule them on your calendar

Invite a friend (open your table)

Give back (gift cards giving hope)

Have an outlet for your grief – write and connect with others who understand your grief journey

Are you grieving and NOT a widow? Would you like to join an online group? Email me, Mishael Porembski, at hello@widowstrong.com and, if there is enough interest, we will start an online grief support group for the holidays for those experiencing grief. You don’t have to be a widow to learn from these AMAZING Warrior Women!

4. Fabulizing an Angel Anniversary: For those who may not know, an angel anniversary honors the date of the passing of a loved one. What a wonderful testimony of fellow widows Emily Upshaw and Michelle Hollis who honored Michelle’s husband’s angel anniversary with such style! I applaud their love for life, strength, hope and rockin’ angel attire!
