mom of 4

I read articles like this and wonder if the famous people could ever make it living like those of us considered low income families. I look at it this way, I have 4 children to support. I talked my children into asking santa for homemade gifts this year because we can not afford to buy anything. We lost our home, and I can not find a job because I am overqualified or not qualified enough going by 15 different employers. My children are sleeping on my mother-in-laws couches while my husband and I are living in the tent in her back yard. I would not be happy if I had all of that stolen from me, but there is no way that I would be living in a mansion and complain about not being able to get things for my kids for christmas. This is comming from a mother that can not even get a job to put food on the table. My in-laws have been wonderful about helping us out, but it is so expensive that they can not afford anything for the holidays either. My point here is that there are people out there in worse positions than I am, and someone is going to say that because they lost items due to a break in that they can not afford the expensive gifts that they normally would have bought for their kids. That is nothing to get upset over. If they knew what it was like for the parents that can not afford to put anything in their kids stockings, then maybe they wouldn't look for someone to feel bad for them anymore. Sometimes things don't work out the way you want, so find a new path, don't sulk over the past and things that you can not change. Look for something to replace the old traditions. Start something new. Make it a home made christmas if you have to. The true gifts of the heart are hand made. If my 4 year old can understand that, then it must be a person that is lost that can be an adult and not understand it.
