while I was waiting at various places today I heard a few different conversations…

a discussion took place on preparing for Thanksgiving… they were discussing the expense incurred to produce the meal for family and friends… one comment was about having to wait until the next payday to purchase some final items for the dinner… everyone was happy to be having the company and looking forward to the time together but commiserating about what a huge chunk of cash is required…

at another location heard about someone not having the funds to provide the meal they were hoping for…

I remember those days, living payday to payday and what a struggle it was…

reminded me of how blessed I am… my beloved left me in pretty good financial shape… I can’t go crazy but I don’t have to worry too much about the cost of my groceries…

later I watched a few older couples walking around the mall holding hands… still one of the things I miss most…
