4. _________ requires a lot of patience.
Every fall I look forward to winter…except I don’t look forward to it this year. The storm in February was hopefully a once-in-a-lifetime thing for us here in this part of Texas. If it happens again, we won’t have a house left. But, winter is my favorite season solely for the (maybe) cooler temps.
It is never too early to plan for the end of life. Even a non-funeral, just burial, costs over $3,000 here, not including the graves (which thankfully we have already!). Once you have life insurance, do everything within your power to keep it. You never know what may happen later in your life that will make you ineligible for life insurance. I don’t want any of you to have to face what is ahead for our family. When David’s daddy died back in 1987, and we lost our jobs (his dad was our employer), we had a one-year old child and no way to feed him. We cashed in our life insurance policies in order to feed us. Then, life happened – again. Now, we can’t get it. Please don’t make our mistake. It wasn’t a mistake to feed the baby, of course. The mistake was in not looking hard enough to find a way to keep the life insurance instead of taking the (seemingly) easy way out and cashing it in.
I would describe my lifestyle as being a homebody. I am perfectly fine staying home and trying to get this house and yard back in order. I am very introverted and getting more so with each passing day. I can’t function around the noise of being out in the world.
Being a caregiver requires a lot of patience. I do the best that I can, but sometimes I maybe don’t have as much as I should.
Thank you all for reading. Have a blessed weekend!
