I told my 11 year old son weeks ago there would be no Christmas gifts this year for him. He told me he understands and he is ok with it. He knew I have been living in my van. He knew I went 2 weeks with $10 in my pocket and cannot afford gifts.
Yesterday, I got a Christmas card from him. Inside the card, was a $100 bill. I broke out in tears.

I have to pack up and leave the library now. I am breaking out in tears writing about it.
