First year mum and I don't do anything for Christmas.

By: Kootchi | Dec 24, 2015 - 09:01 pm

My father cheated on my mother and ran away to another country when I was 9, leaving mom and I alone. Hes still in touch but lets just say hes a pretty lousy father. So its 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 Ive never had a family (they all live abroad) and I like the feeling of spending it around people. For some reason, this year we havent got anyone to spend it with. I guess we dont have that many friends any more. I wanted to take mom to dinner too, but we dont have enough money to go out for dinner. Shes 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.
