A Christmas present for my mom

Hello Friends.  Earlier this year my dad passed away and my elderly disabled mom and mentally challenged brother moved in with me. We are doing well, but making ends meet is a challenge.  One thing that has been occupying my mom's mind and heart is the belongings she left back  in New York where my family lived most of their life. Dad's passing was a tough experience for our family and making sure that  she and my brother were moved here with me in Austin was my first priority. That meant leaving her cherished belongings behind until we could pay to move them.  Most of you know I have not been able to get permanent employment for some time now.  Christmas is approaching, and it is my desire to bless my mom with the kind of present that will bring her great joy and comfort for her first Christmas without my Dad after 58 years of marriage.   The things she left behind are precious to her.  Would you help be a part of this Christmas blessing?  If you could contribute to her Christmas with whatever amount you would like to give, it will allow us to close a chapter in our lives that has been very difficult and give my mom the chance to move forward....at least to some extent. Whatever you would like give we will consider to be a great blessing - no amount is too small.  Asking for help is very humbling, but since we have other expenses that also must be met, I have decided to turn to GoFund Me to make this happen and give my mom a special Christmas. I thank you very much for your compassion and heart. Many Blessings to you all!
