Darling I couldn't send anything this week(because I am going for 2 days instead of 1 and need the extra so we have food during our visit).I looked back at letters from feb.and sometimes I could also put in the same.16 covers about 2 books of stamps which equals 40 letters chicken soup is .25 cents,a toothbrush is .95, thermal pants are 5.95,wool knit gloves are 3.25....My point is he could just get necessary items this week.No need to buy the racquetball racquet, or the timex watch.16 dollars may not seem like a lot to some, but there are people who don't even recieve anything.Don't beat yourself up about the amount.Some weeks will be better than others, and even if they all are bad money weeks, its more important to be supportive of love.What good is a 10 bedroom house if no one who loves you rests beside you in it?Or would someone rather be in one bedroom,four walls unitrecieving much love outside of those walls?My point is money may buy him material things but it can't buy him you.You give him more than any amount of commisary would ever give him...the gap in his heart filled to the max...

I only sent $20 to my friend when I decided to send him money. He's my boy and we grew up together so he appreciated it. It's the thought that counts and when you take the time to send him money, whether it be $100 or $10 you are thinking of him. Don't feel upset or like you didn't do enough. You did just fine

Hey.. he's probably happy that you sent something. I just sent my son 50.00 but haven't sent him anything in a month. I spoke to him today and asked how much he had and he said its been zero for awhile. LOL. I told him.. Oops. I forgot.. I kept putting it on the back burner. I told him that if I send it before 8pm tonight, it will go in tonight.

bt even if it is that and thats all he wants. i will do it out of the kindness of my heart.
and soon he would realize "if havent already"
that he is the one and only man i love and have.

You do what YOU are able to do & if he comes back at you with some lame comment you mentioned. He's not worth it....

Someone who cares about you is going to make sure YOU take care of yourself before taking care of him. They will not whine about the amount of money sent or not sent. They know you need to make sure YOU come before him.

So, don't stress over the small things - it's not worth it.

I don't know about the others. But I will say this there were times when Linda or my parents could not send anything for ages.

Yeah life was hard, but it would have been harder if they were not there for me in so, so many more important ways!

I did not have to worry about losing my home;

nor my children, I would have lost them if it had not been for my parents and my life partner;

my own stupidity got me into a position where I could not do the most important thing in my life, love, care, be there, for my children;

and my parents or Linda made damn sure I saw my babies at the very least once a month;

and the emotional support, love, and strength they gave me out of love for me, well there is only one way to put it: Priceless. They did not have to do that, they could have said: Oh, Patti is a screw up, let her deal with it on her own. I knew girls that friends and family had completely washed their hands of them!

So you know what Stacie? $16.00 is fine, $0.00 is fine too, the important thing is that you are there for him. I don't know you and I don't know him, however if he is lucky enough to have someone who loves him and will make this journey with him, well he is very, very fortunate. So many are abandoned and have no one.

Do what you can when you can, the important thing is you did something. God will reward you for doing something from your heart, your man will also thank you. There are alot I do mean alot of men who do not a anything. Believe me when I tell you he is greatful. When you get more you can do more. Do not beat yourself up.

All I can tell you is he should be proud to have you in his corner. You gave what you could and thats what love is giving the best you can. Girl he should cherish that $16 bucks and spend at least a dollor on a beautiful card. Because girl you deserve it!!!

Default What you can afford

PLEASE DO NOT FEEL BAD- ITS IN YOUR HEART TO DO MORE AND ALL THAT YOU CAN. IM SURE ALL OF US HAVE HAD VERY MINIMAL AS TO WHAT WE COULD SEND AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER AND MAYBE DIDNT EVEN HAVE WHAT YOU HAD. PLEASE DO NOT BEAT UP ON YOURSELF! JUST THINK SOME PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE ANY MONEY AT ALL AND DO NOT HAVE ANYONE TO SEND THEM ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY- JUST REMEMBER THAT WHEN WE THINK WE HAVE IT BAD, THERES ALWAYS SOMEONE THAT HAS IT WORSE. ITS A BAD FEELING TO NOT BE ABLE TO DO ALL THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO DO FOR OUR LOVED ONES- ALL WE CAN DO, ALL ANYONE CAN DO IS THEIR BEST! KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!
