Do you think money can buy happiness? This is a yes and no answer for me. I need to lean more to yes though… especially with a family of 7. If I can’t pay my bills, buy food for my family and have gas to get them to school do you think I would be a happy person? The answer is no!
I think that money is relative to all of us, no matter how much we have we have. $5 a day or $5,000 a day, we all need it. I know I do. When you don’t have the money to do the essential things in life it is stressful and please don’t tell me that it isn’t. I know it is. I have been through more living situations in my life than most. I have worked since I was 12 years old and also haven’t worked now for the past 6 1/2 years. I have had enough money to pay for everybody around me and I have not had .20 cents to my name to make a phone call to call the temp agency for a job.
Don’t get me wrong. I always tried to stay happy during the hard times. I have my health, wonderful friends and the best family ever. That is what always made me look forward. To hug my children each day is amazing. If I could give them more I would in a flash with no hesitation. I wouldn’t only give to my household, but I would help anyone else I could. Life is grand! Enjoy it! Live it in the best way you can. As I have always said… Life on the edge, don’t fall off. 🙂
