Hobbies getting well, reading, caring for my 15 yr old daughter
About Me Iam 40, have been married for almost 22 years, the last 15 yrs I have had 14 surgeries and my husband Andy has cared for me thru it all. I had my stomach and part of my throat removed due to cancer cells spreading, that was my last surgery now that I have been disabled, on meds, and such I need $11,000 worth of dental work due to my teeth getting messed up from the meds, dry mouth. etc. We just could use a break!! I try to be upbeat, it is just hard at times.

Help for Holiday Stress
217 days ago

I am on disability with a 16 yr old daughter and we just had to pay $1200 to fix our car because an uninsured woman hit us and totaled the drivers side of my car. That is extremely stressful. My daughter only wants for us to be able to pay our bills and smile more (according to her Santa letter) although I knows he has been wanting an Ipod and Beats for a couple of years!

Ellen's Got Your Thanksgiving Seating Plan
239 days ago

I hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving holiday,I love you Ellen. I am the one who crashed my car two weeks ago with an uninsured lady (still dealing with that). The dr called today and put me on some different medicine so hopefully I won't be in too much agony over the holidays. I wanted to tell you we went to Steak n Shake yesterday and the waiter happened to be all by himself with about 6 tables to serve and we waited and waited then I noticed there was only one cook as well while the manager of the place just SAT in the lobby doing NOTHING!!! I couldn't believe this manager, aren't they there to help the employees when they are needed? My order was a bit wrong, however he was very polite in fixing it and when I didn't care for my lemonade (too sweet) he gave me a water without a problem. My check total ended up being $16.66 and in front of the manager I walked up to the young man and gave him a $10 bill. That was going to partly be my gas money but I just couldn't believe the way his own manager was treating him by not helping. When I did that the manager then took him aside and said he was doing an excellent job after I had told him that otherwise I don't think he would have been told that, he made a point to thank me on the way out. It feels really good to help out when I can.

This young man will change the world, I only pray there are more parents out there to encourage their children to think outside the box as this boy has done. God Bless you for showing the world this story and let him be an inspiration to all of us. I have emailed you several times about our problems and not sure if you are even getting them, however I have a 16 yr old (in a week) and I pray she is inspired by this story. She just gets down and doesn't think she can go to college or do anything because of our lack of money, however I keep telling her she needs to work hard and she can do anything. Even her book rental is over $200 and we get free lunch and book assistance and she is in 10th grade, so I think she believes she can't do more than just the minimum because we can't pay for it. I just keep telling her shoot for the stars. You just keep helping where you can that is wonderful!!I love you Ellen!

I Love You Ellen, I hope you have a fantastic time in Australia. I have written you several times about husband. I hope you would just think of him while you are gone, Andy has done so much in his life to care for me just as you have done to care for others and you deserve it!!! Have a great time, one day he will also be able to go somewhere.
Love Melanie
