So I sit here and realize that we are in the month of December. It's Christmas season and I have 2 wonderful children who deserve the world but I can't even get them a tree for Christmas. I have been struggling like many others, I couldn't afford my rent so we were $5000 behind, because I needed to make sure there was food in the fridge. I work full-time, and I am a full-time mother. I am trying to teach my children morals, respect, and help them grow into bright adults. It's tough!!! I can sit here and give ou a sob story about how tough life has been for us, the deaths, the separations and so on.. But I won't. Instead of celebrating Christmas the way we usually do, I am going to have my family do some volunteer work at a homeless shelter for children and families. We will do something special for families that are less fortunate than us... So I write this to give others hope and ideas.. I feel this will teach my little family that materials items are replaceable, but love and helping others isn't. Merry Christmas all...
