Christmas 2014 compared to last year

Last year due to some unforseen circumstances I wasn’t able to give my children much of a Christmas. They each had one gift under the tree. The cupboards and deep freezer were empty. I was already working two jobs and was still struggling to make ends meet. Since that time I have paid off some bills and started a financial plan that really works for me. I even have extra money in the bank for a rainy day.

This year I got to quit my second job in June which gives me a lot more time with the kids. We have cupboards and a freezer full of food. I have went a little overboard in the presents this year. But when I remember them sad but thankful faces last year it makes it all worth it come Christmas morning when they see what Santa has done this year.

    Yay for the little things! I am happy that you were able to quit your second job for almost 2 years I worked 3rd shift at a gas station then first shift at a hospital. It killed me and I felt like all I was doing was working and missing out in life. But if I didn’t work then we wouldn’t be able to pay our bills and what not. It was a great feeling when I could quit my 3rd shift job and focus on my career and began to relax and not feel tired all the time.

    It’s the little things we take for granted-roof over our heads, food in our bellies, love, and gifts from our loved ones that can make our lives amazing. We don’t truly appreciate it until we have gone without.

    Love to you and your family and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
