Sad Christmas season :(. ****UPDATE-Please read!!!)

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My husband of 14 yrs left us for his mistress in July. I was only working pt but immediately got a second job to provide for my kids. I have been doing really well keeping the bills paid, but things are still tight. I had started stashing money away for Christmas with my first check to make sure I was able to give them a good Christmas even without their dad. I had 600 saved and was gonna go shopping this week (they are 8 & 15 so I can't shop early because they find it) but this weekend the motor blew in my car so now I have to use that as a down pmt on another car. I am so lost, I don't know what to do. I tried to get a loan and was denied and it is too late to get assistance from angel trees or toys for tots.



I'm not asking for money or anything so please, no bashing. But prayers, good vibes, or whatever you do would be appreciated.



UPDATE! - apparently judging from the replies, there is another member asking people for money. This is NOT me. I haven't been on since I posted this and I have never asked anyone for anything. Im really sorry this is happening but I wanted to set the record straight.
Thank you to all who gave good advice and sent prayers, it was appreciated!

I'm so sorry...can you do homemade gifts?  I would just let the kids know what is going on...I'm sure they will understand that you will all have to pull together.

That's just horrible. I will never understand why people have to be so ugly like that.

 call the school. My kids school is helping families out with christmas. I didn't even know about it until someone sign my children up, i got a call to come pick up paperwork, that was just 2 days ago. Call your kids school and see if they are doing something like that. My kids school has already helped like 120 families this year.
