She lives!!

I'm not a regular blogger.  I want to be.  I plan to be.  I wish I could be.  But I'm not.  I will go through times when I am, but mostly I'm an occasional blogger.  So here is one of my occasional posts.


I came across the City Lights column today, looked up authors and from there found this article.  I really enjoyed it.  Because my family and I spent so much time being way too poor to spend a fortune on gifts we learned other ways to celebrate.  As much as it sometimes sucked there are times when I think not having money was a real gift to my children.  Mostly they don't focus on material needs and are also willing to give to people who don't have as much as they do.  Maybe the same would have been true if we had never lost our income.  Maybe not.  Can't say what would have happened, only what actually did.  I don't want to be that poor again, where I have to choose between utilities, food and rent  - but having been there, I also know that I don't need to drag myself out of bed to hit the stores at 3 am.  There are things just so much more important.
