Today is Day 16 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
The theme today for the photo challenge I am using as inspiration is “Money”
Money has never been that important to me. Yes, I need it and have worked hard to save it and it is nice to have. But, I don’t obsess over it and don’t worry about it much anymore. As a single parent, I worried but I was always able to find a way to pay my bills and get what my children needed.
Since my remarriage, we have gotten rid of all debt, paid off our mortgage and now live comfortably. My kids are settled, we have both retired and we are able to get what we need and usually what we want.
But now it is health that we worry about, and what hinders us. My hubby’s heart issues prevent us from travelling out of the country. And for that matter, even travelling too far away.
We had great plans to travel once we retired – to England, Australia, France. Money wasn’t an issue – now health is.
There is a saying by Lee Strasberg:
“Good health is the most important thing… More than money.”
So very true. Please – protect your health!
