had a few conversations about money recently…

brought back some memories of when George died and I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep the house or have a life…

George did a good job of ensuring there was sufficient money available for me… there was life insurance money and RSP money and pension money… all of which enabled me to continue my life without any great difficulty… truly I have been blessed…

like others, I am more likely to spend some of it now, as opposed to waiting till I retire, because who knows whether I will be healthy in five or ten years, or even alive…

in January I took all of the kids to Mexico, thanks to some of the life insurance money that I received… I was able to take the Alaskan cruise with some of those funds as well…

now I have slowed the spending pace down a bit, but am thinking about what trip I will take next…

I think about all I learned after he died and I had to deal with insurance companies, credit card companies and government agencies… sadly, if you make any mistakes in the process it can take a very long time to get things sorted out…

but money isn’t everything, as I have seen with a few friends who have lots of it… it doesn’t really bring happiness or health, although it does provide some peace of mind…

there is also the currency of friendship, and health and caring for others…

remember...

remember…
