Ellen, First I would like to say that I find you one of the most compassoinate person I have ever ran across in my life. I have wirtten to you several times in the past. I don't know if you get the chance to read all your emails or not. I'm sure you get thousands everyday.
I guess my story is like most everyone elses. I lost my mother in Sept. 2011 and then lost the love between my 2 children for each other. After that I lost my boyfriend folowing a month later loosing my job. I have been unemployed since March of this year and had no success finding anything else. The first holiday season I went through right after loosing my mother was a very hard year for me. I have had it hard finding the financing to just make it through my everyday life. I almost lost my truck as well as my home. My home is still in danger of being lost.
What hurts me the most is that I have 2 grandaughter that I have not been able to buy for christmas as well as my own children in the past 2 years. It has been the most heartbreaking thing I have had to do is to tell them that I just don't have the money to buy for them. Before being unemployed I would always give them the best Christmas I could possibly give them.
Do to my son and daughter having a argument the day after my mother pasted I have not been able to have them together for any holiday since. To be a mother that is the most heartbreaking thing that I have ever had to go through. I called my son tonight and asked if his sister could Please come with me to his house on Christmas Eve for me to have them together and he told me "No". I feel that they need to put there differences aside at least for the holidays but he want. I don't get to see my grandchildren like I used to. It's like they make me feel that I have to make a chose between the 2 of them and that is not something I am willing to do. I love both of my children. They are all I have left for family other than a brother. If there is anything you can do to help me with giving them a good Christmas or advise me in what I can do to make my present situation better I would so much appreciate your advise. Since all this has happend I stay depressed and have had an emotional breakdown. If it had not of been for my daughter being with me I truely don't know what would of happen to me.
Ellen I need help with myself and with puttiing my family back together. My son just doesn't want to let go of a grudge for something that has happen in the past. Family means more to me than any grudges.
Please help me before I have totaly lost it. Family and financially. It is hard having a seperate relationships with your children. I love them both so much and it is breaking my heart having this distance between use all and it is not good for my grandaughters not being able to even see their Aunt..
Ellen I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year..

Ellen, I watch your show all the time and have seen the wonderful things that you have done for others and there is nothing for satifying than to see a family happy. I have been one of those people that have been unfortunate to have lost my job and have been unemployed for about a year now. And for me the worst part about it is not being able to give my grand-daughters the things they deserve for Christmas as well as my 2 children.I have had a very hard year with the passing of my mother and then the loss of my job. I am waiting on my house to go into foreclosure and pray that I can manage to keep my truck that I have worked so hard to keep. It is hard a parent when they are not able to help their children in the way that they were used to doing. I give everything I have to make sure my children and grand-children get all the things they want and God bless the all they never ask for much from me because they know the struggles I am going through. I breakes my heart to have to say to them that Grammie just can't afford to give tem what they want. They understand my situation so they don't ask for much but that is gotten to be a challenge for me to give to them. I would just like for once in a long time to be able to give them the true things they want. I do pray everyday for a job but have had no success and my health is getting worse to where there aren't to many things that I can do as far as work goes.
Ellen I would just like to say thanks for just listening to me. The one thing in life that I find the hardest to do is ask for help from anyone. But I think the things you do for for unfortunate families is the most wonderful thing that anyone has ever done. I see your compassion for people and it just touches my heart like you wouldn't believe.
I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas.

Thanks Sincerely
Vickie Wortman
