||My name is Carrie. I am currently unemployed and therefor have enjoyed watching Ellen alot. I am so thrilled to hear of all the great things happening for people through you show! Last year I finally got the courage to leave a very controlling...almost abusive marriage and moved away in order to heal. I did not handle it well though and my sons both live near/with their father. My eldest son blames me for leaving his father but is slowly coming around. When I moved away I was certain I would soon find work and be able to fly them down or go up and visit often. I have not been able to do so. I'm gratefull for the care and friendship of a few wonderful people but it hurts so that I left my sons. They are coming for Christmas....hoorah! But I currently have no funds to buy them any gifts. I love them so and want them to have a great Christmas to help make up for the fact that I'm not near them.
Anyway...I'm a seasoned professional and gratefull for many blessings...I'm sure soon I'll find employment again and be able to contribute to their lives and the community again! Thanks
