On becoming 40...

This year will be remembered for many reasons... I am choosing gratitude for the Lord's provisions and that we even have a 12 passenger van to tote us around in...

Oh yes....gas prices. Glad you are seeing the positive side of that. {smile Hard to do sometimes. But at least we have vehicles and the funds to pay that price.

Have a great day.

a positive attitude means so much! Congrats on your milestone birthday (and to your little miss, too!)

It's always a good thing to praise the Lord for His provisions. And, I for one, need to be reminded.

I am trying to be positive, but after $70.14 and the gauge didn't get to full, I was a little miffed. I will try to be grateful for my beautiful 10 year old Durango, though! Thank you for the reminder.

Our new buggy horse arrives Friday...won't be paying at the pump as much, but up goes the cost of hay, farrier work, etc. :~)

Living in an old farm house in the middle of nowhere $120 dollar a week for gas is the norm. At the same time it is about what we put the gas in for. Work, the kids school events and visiting family.
At the same time it helps us appreciate spending time together at home. Also helps us look at ways that we are wasting money.
Thanks Jon solardiyinfo.org
