Over the last year, myself and my family have fallen into a series of unfortunate events which has led me to the situation I am in now. Just to name a few things;
1. My husband was in a car accident in December of 2017. Thankfully, he was okay. His car, however, was not. His car was totaled and he was also at fault for said accident. Since that point, my car has become the family car toting myself, my husband and my small children (ages 7 & 2) between work, sporting events and school.
2. My husband also within a month of the accident, decided to step down out of his managerial role and into a full time regular associate role, also taking a pay cut. Though I have a decent career, it is just starting and I am at the bottom of the totem pole for payscale.
As the bills are piling up around our heads because of the lifestyle adjustment we’ve needed to make as a family, I am just barely keeping my head above water each month. I came to the realization that I wouldn’t have enough left over, once my bills are paid, to give my children Christmas presents.
I guess, I’m writing this now as I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to put my pride to the side and ask for help. I’m not asking for a lot. I’m asking for enough to get them a couple of nice gifts and some stocking stuffers, enough to make them feel Santa’s presence, as they are both still young enough to believe. They are so sweet, tender hearted, loving and deserving and I am totally devastated that I am not able to provide even just a few small things for them.
Thank you, for taking the time to read this. I know it’s cliche and likely has been written before, but as a mom it breaks my heart that I am at this point in the holiday season.
