Right now, I would love to be able to give my son more of what he wants and needs for Christmas. I have one gift for him and that is it. People that were going to help us due to layoffs at my husband's work backed out on us. So now I have to try to help my son understand that this is all we could do.
I agree about the economy. IT SUCKS! My husband is now on a two and a half week layoff. When he goes back in January, we are not guaranteed that the layoff won't be continued either.
Happy Holidays! Yes, I am trying to keep a happy face and do the best I can in the present situation.
Faerydreamer Don't worry about Christmas. All things will work out. I grew up without a father and times were hard for us. We had many struggles but we always managed. We may have had second hand clothes and not much but we were rich. We had love which is the greatest thing to have. We learned very early that the best gifts are handmade for they are filled with love. Just being together was enough. Every once in awhile we received a special gift. Miracles often happen at Christmas. Enjoy being with your family and make special gifts for each other. You will have a wonderful Christmas. RebeccaAnn
That is very true, RebeccaAnn. Family is the best part of the holidays. We do treasure our time. My husband is seriously thinking about one gift for my son, adoption. My son's father passed away almost four years ago. I always stress to my son that we have the best, each other.
What does your son think of your husband? How does he feel? I think being adopted would be the greatest gift ever. It would mean someone special cares about me and wants me enough to be with me for always. A father for Christmas would be the greatest gift. I could think of nothing better. RebeccaAnn
My current husband was my ex-husband's friend and caregiver. We have known each other for 12 years. Rich waited patiently for me. When my ex died, Rich started spending more time with us. I was thick headed about it. I did not realize what was going on until Christmas Eve 2005 when he gave me an engagement ring.
My son and my husband get along great. They have moments but my son is either and Indigo child (still researching) or ADD/ODD. Either way some moments are very difficult.
We have made a wonderful family together. Many people do not realize that Rich and my son are not biologically related. And the story behind the relationship is good for a laugh.
Merry Christmas! We haven't much but we have lots of love. If you write me a private mail or email me we can get together and find something special for your son and family. For us Christmas goes all the way til 12th Night which is Jan 6th. I would like to know about your son and try to make or get him something special. RebeccaAnn
