December 20……Dear Jesus,
This year could you help me with Christmas gifts? I don’t have the money, well you know that…to buy the gifts my kids want. If you could help me with my babysitter too….I’m behind on paying her. The second job I got is helping but not enough. How will I get through this Christmas? Most of all, watch over me and my kids. I love you. P.S. Here is what the kids want:
Anything “fun” as Mikey says
My own phone!
Money to buy my mommy a gift…
