Wow. Just wow.
SO I had a little pity party in that last post… at least I tried to make it humorous, right?
But then this crazy thing happened. People started showing up at the door with presents for the kids, and even for us! And then I log in to my paypal account, because I’ve got to find a way to make money online and that’s the best way to keep track of it -lo and behold, a fellow livejournaler has deposited money in it!
It feels ridiculous to even try and say thank you for the generosity. I mean, everyone I know has problems of their own and yet they found the time and were willing to spend their hard-earned money on cheering me up and giving my family a decent Christmas.
Thank you sincerely, from the bottom of my heart. If it weren’t for friends like endlezzdream,
I might have completely missed out on the magic of the season. As it stands, I’m grateful for our home and my family and the wonderful spirit of empathy that comes out this time of year. I hope everyone has as Merry a Yule as I’m going to, just knowing that there are really good people out there waiting for an opportunity to shine.
Okay, enough with the gushing. It’s not the end of the world, afterall. Perhaps with all the help I’ve gotten I can now afford to start that transcription job my sister just told me about. Now I can afford the foot-pedal needed for the transcription program.
