A couple weeks before xmas, the staff at my workplace discovered that one of our own was having financial problems and was worried that her 10 year old daughter would not have a christmas. We got together (and I'm a single mother on a budget whose family...yes my daughter and son contributed...gave $50) and we ended up being able to give this family $500 towards Christmas...we figured that they were also needing money to pay a bill or two and it might help them get back on track. The very next week her husband sends her a dozen roses...to me a luxury...and an expensive one that will die at that. I felt quite taken aback and now realizing how they ended up in the financial situation they are in...both young and able bodied workers with ONLY one child. Am I wrong to feel that this was a slap in the face to all of us who helped this family? Who in the world goes out and sends roses when you are in such financial trouble that a collection is taken up so you can pay some bills and have a christmas for your child????
