I have written a lot about the hard times that my family has been through. One of the hardest times of the year was the holidays. I have spent several Christmases sobbing because I wasn’t able to purchase gifts for W myself. (I am so blessed to have so many great friends that took care of playing the role of Santa for him!) This year I have been setting aside gifts early and while I am still not able to just fill a cart at the toy store I am not anxious about having nothing for him to open on Christmas morning. That not anxious feeling is kind of wonderful.
Now one of you is going to have some breathing room this December. $500 could buy a lot of gifts or groceries or pay that bill that came out of nowhere. I am so excited that Check ‘n Go asked me to host this giveaway.
