First year mum and I don't do anything for Christmas.
By Kootchi Story ID: 38
My father cheated on my mother and ran away to another country when I was 9, leaving mom and I alone. He's still in touch but let's just say he's a pretty lousy father. So it's always been just my mum and I my whole life.
Every year we spend Christmas with a family. We order a big turkey and have dinner together and share presents. Its nice. I always loved it because I've never had a family (they all live abroad) and I like the feeling of spending it around people. For some reason, this year we haven't got anyone to spend it with. I guess we don't have that many friends any more. I wanted to take mom to dinner too, but we don't have enough money to go out for dinner. She's also very upset because her mother passed away a couple of months ago, and this is the first Christmas without her. I feel terrible.
I hope this passes. Count your blessings, merry Christmas.
