One For The Books

I realized I had not made one single post in the month of August and thought I'd better get at least one in.

Life has been hectic this month and filled with lots of work, lung infections, oral surgery and fun changes. Right now, my thoughts are with my dear friend who is in Chicago with her ailing father. He's a man not only large of stature but heart. When my own father was in intensive care and unable to walk me down the aisle on my wedding day he stepped in. I don't know if he ever really knew how much that meant to me. He was not only a physical stand in for my dad. He acted like my own father would have. The money he slipped me that day was enough to save my honeymoon but the hug and kiss on the cheek are what I will always cherish.

I've done a lot of soul searching too this month. I'm contemplating changing the way I earn money in this world. It seems like the harder I work, the more I need to just get by. I know a lot of people are struggling with this in today's economy. I need a plan better than the lottery to get me off the financial hamster wheel of death.

Hang in there with me please. I find the words hard to come by lately.
