Sad Christmas season :(. ****UPDATE-Please read!!!)

My husband of 14 yrs left us for his mistress in July. I was only working pt but immediately got a second job to provide for my kids. I have been doing really well keeping the bills paid, but things are still tight. I had started stashing money away for Christmas with my first check to make sure I was able to give them a good Christmas even without their dad. I had 600 saved and was gonna go shopping this week (they are 8 & 15 so I can't shop early because they find it) but this weekend the motor blew in my car so now I have to use that as a down pmt on another car. I am so lost, I don't know what to do. I tried to get a loan and was denied and it is too late to get assistance from angel trees or toys for tots.



I'm not asking for money or anything so please, no bashing. But prayers, good vibes, or whatever you do would be appreciated.



UPDATE! - apparently judging from the replies, there is another member asking people for money. This is NOT me. I haven't been on since I posted this and I have never asked anyone for anything. Im really sorry this is happening but I wanted to set the record straight.
Thank you to all who gave good advice and sent prayers, it was appreciated!

    Just try to do some special things with them like make cookies or go somewhere fun. Gifts and material things aren't always the most important things. Hope things get better for you. Don't measure yourself as a mother by the toys you can or cannot buy them.

    You could always call a local church in your area to see if they know of any help. Also a LDS church could help too! I'm sorry and praying you find help for your family! No bashing here, its hard here too!!

    You don't need money to give them a good Christmas. It will only be a bad Christmas is it's spent sitting around pouting about presents and money, make the most of it and give them a fun Christmas they will remember.

    You arent going to get much of a car with $600 down. Why aren't you getting child support?

    is there any way that your family could help out? just buy one thing for each kids?

    maybe try to sell plasma. not much, but it helps a little... also- maybe if you explain to them that you cant get them a gift right now, but in a few months, you can splurge a bit and buy them something they really want? (tax season) hopefully they can understand it

    I always wonder what makes people post insensitive stuff like this. Does it make you feel better?
