More than Money

I had a nice, long, overdue conversation with my friend Carol today. I miss her so much. She has always been one of my biggest cheerleaders in life. Today I was feeling a little discouraged that finances are so tight right now. It is frustrating when we have to wait on little things like the purchase of a pair of shoes because of all the things I am juggling. Carol pointed out all the things in our lives that are so much more valuable than money - the relationships my children have with one another and me, the opportunities they have been given, the love that they have. It is so good to have a friend like that when you are missing the forest for the trees. True friends are priceless, and life is way more than money.

  1. Carol is such a wise person. And not only did she remind you, but because you posted it she through you reminded me. Life is really good.

  2. I honestly don't know what I'd do without my best girlfriends. My hubby will do in a pinch, but it's just not the same. :)

  3. Good friend you have there :)
    If you read my post on faith it will give a small glimpse of what we have been through this past year. We hit rock bottom and now are climbing out and we all need new shoes :)
    Hang in there it's all good and life is more than money or things :)
