  • Go to your town offices, police department, and fire departent and ask if there is a Secret Santa, or similar charity program, you can sign up for. Also Google your state and county website and search for information. GL

  • It's hard, I understand. My family has been struggling since my husband died - and that's what I hear from most of the women in my widows group here. Times are really tough.
    You might want to see if you can find a temporary job - during the holidays, you can sometimes find jobs doing stock and that sort of thing for retail stores.
    Don't worry so much about the gifts. Christmas is so much more about family than it is about gifts. Make special times, do simple things together like baking cookies or watching a Christmas show.
    Just enjoy your family while you have them, don't waste energy worrying about what you don't have - life can change so soon, the people we love can be gone. Hoping you have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones.
