I have a lot of good friends I found out. And that surprised me as no one has ever gave me anything. I was given the left over food from works Christmas party. And now a lady I work with she called to give me deer meat. OK not sure how to cook it but will get it. My other Dear friend told me that if I loose my home I can move in with him. That in its self was a shock. But now I have a hole lot of love going on in my life as well, as problems but you know they seem small now. So do you have the love you need or can't you see it? As I say look for the Silver Linning and you will be happy. You have to look hard sometimes. And a big thank you to all my Dear friends here that keep me smiling I don't know what I would do with out you. You all know who you are. God Bless and Merry Christmas.

This is the most heart warming thing I have read! I am so happy for you! I'm not aware of your situation.. but I hope you have everything that you need and I hope you have a beautiful Christmas with the people that ya love :) I do have the love of my family and friends.. and count myself very blessed... and I'm glad that you have that too! um... the deer meat... good luck with that, I tried making it one time and the house reeked and I sat outside my house (3 months pregnant with morning sickness) throwing up.. I am told that you have to soak it over night in vinegar. Merry Christmas!

Yes they are looking out for me. And I try to help them as well. WE laugh at each other about are problems and cry and we are like a family. Oh I feel bad abouthe deer meat yes I also heard if you soak in in milk. But you know it is more for my Son,roommmate and his son. I will have a salad. I know that is bad. But I really don't like it. childhood we had it alot. now I just can't eat it. But they all love it. So they can enjoy. Making a face right now. You Have a Wonderful Christmas and stay away from deer meet.

Hello, I can certainly relate, I am in a situation and I got food from my church. Last week, my sister in law, said she was talking to someone about me needing a job. The lady volunteeer at a good will center. She brought me food as well as a $15.00 gift card to Pathmark supermarket. I was truly grateful, then she told me that they were giving away free new coats on last Tuesday. I went and got two nice winter coats. I too, have a whole lot of love and am good. Keep posting

Well, my roommate used to work with us as they know he got laid off. And they ask. I told them how things were. I din't tell them all of it as for me that is just to sad. I do have a Christmas tree and lights. I will have a Christmas dinner. There will be no presents this year but we have each other. Whe they ask How are things going you tell them that is it. I never used to but the stress of it all was making me have chest pains and now they are gone. Let it out tell your parents and friends it does help even if they can't do anything for you just to listen is the big +. You have a great day. Your friend onlydia

hi nice to hear that people are helping you. thats what i am telling you several days ago when your afraid on how you can survive since you had been laid off from work. God is indeed a good provider. He is sending people to help you. Let us thank God for that wonderful blessings. i am pretty sure that one day you will be posting here that you have a new work. Continue asking God what you need and He will give it to you. Be blessed.

i think you must be a beautiful girl,or something you have attract others.But there is a old saying "a friend in need ,a friend is indeed" Maybe when you were in trouble ,the person help you out was an ordinary even then you have look down on him.So one or two real friend is enough.
