If I where you I'd buy a nice Christmas card & enclose a gift
card ( from Wal-mart or whatever department store this lady
would have ready access to & would use ) & mail it to her.
You could also enclose a personal note telling her that you
want her to do something nice/special for herself & the kids
for Christmas! ( Esp. knowing that her hubby more than likely
will not be able to be home with them for Christmas. ) I'm
sure that she has needs ( what woman with a family they
sacrifice themselves for 24/7/365 doesn't? ) & the extra $
will be a blessing to/for her/them. Esp. at this time of year!
God bless you for wanting to do right by both Blu & her
former family! That's refreshing in the day & age, when most
people want/expect something for nothing.
