...because everyone in my family seems to think so.
I don't understand it really. We have a lot of debt and a variable income (my husband works in the automotive industry as a diesel technician - and as we know business isn't exactly booming right now). Also we are a one-income family. Alfred goes out into the world to make the living and I make life worth living.
My sister was visiting yesterday and mentioned she was struggling to make ends meet. When I mentioned the same she acted shocked and said we had money. Hardly so! I manage to make ends meet in spite of our challenges, but it's not easy. I shared with her the things I do to help reduce expenes and pinch my pennies.
I can not and will not complain though. I have a good man who loves me and works hard to support our family. I have a roof over my head, clothes to wear, a reliable car to drive, food on the table, and we live in a free country.
I am a blessed woman, no doubt about it.
