As my old anti-anxiety medicine leaves my system, and my one new kicks in, I realize how out of control I was with the spending. My old medicine made me impulsive, reckless. My debit card was on fire! My husband said if he called the house and I said "guess what I bought..." one more time he was taking my card to work with him! But, thank the Lord, those urges are dead and gone.
I don't want to be one of those people living above their means, buying just to buy, trying to impress. I want to be someone who is happy with what they have! My family doesn't need the shiny big new TV, endless video games, the newest cell phones, the marble counter tops. The kids don't need to live in a museum of nice things, they need a home. We need love, each other, God, hope...family. We need laughter, hugs, memories. The kids need home cooked meals, stories at bedtime, Friday night movie night. I want to show my children what is really means to live.
Welcome to the good life!!
