My grandmother, from all family accounts was a wonderful and wise woman. Unfortunately, my grandmother, died when my mother was only seventeen, so I never had the pleasure of meeting her.
My grandmother used to tell her six children, “we’re not poor, we’re just broke. Poor is an attitude, broke is a condition.” My family has experienced that “broke” condition over the past couple of years partially because of legal challenges which required time and research to defend which took time away from income producing activities. Last night, I went to bad feeling bad and worried because I couldn’t afford to give my family much this year.
My sons woke me up this morning around 7 am to the sounds of Christmas music. We told each other how much we loved one another, hugged and opened presents. We called family members and as soon as they answered the phone we sang, “we wish you a Merry Christmas.” Although, we were not able to provide much for our sons this Christmas, we had a wonderful morning and experienced the true joy of family. We all gave love this Christmas and it was the most wonderful gift to behold.
My oldest son, who recently started working and is still in school, bought presents for us all, but especially for his little brother. Seeing the joy in my son’s eyes as his little brother opened his gifts allowed me to experience a peace and joy I hadn’t expected this Christmas.
If you’re reading this, most likely you have your own legal issues and your family may also be experiencing hardships this Christmas. If that is the case, you’re not alone and I hope that you too will find some joy and peace the way my family did today. Our family motto is “Always take care of your family,” and today, I had a bright shining example that my sons have embraced that motto with all their hearts.
The best presents can’t be bought, so if you’re like us and didn’t have any money, give love, you’ll be surprise how much it’s appreciated and needed. This site exist in that spirit of love in hopes that others can avoid some of the hardships I experienced and quickly find the legal information they need that might make the difference. Have a wonderful holiday and embrace those that you love!
