Can't Afford The Little Things

My daughter really wanted a book. The author was going to be at the school today to sign the books. But, since I do not make enough money, I was unable to purchase the book. I know that Olivia will love me no matter what... but I can't help but have tears in my eyes and know that I can't provide like I would like to for her. She doesn't get all the cool toys like everyone else... she doesn't get a dad like everyone else... she doesn't even have her own room or own bed-- (we still share)... and it is things like this that throw my emotions for a loop.
I do my best... but sometimes, a Walmart job that gives 32 hours MAX a week and pays $7.55 and hour is not enough. Oh how I hate that I cannot afford to give her the little wants in life...
This is just on my heart and mind today... forgive me.
