It seems like my money is gone long before my pay check arrives. If we dwell on thoughts of what money can buy, we may feel at loss because it seems there is never enough to go around. How did our parents get us through the lean years? They knew how to stretch a dollar, how to get something for nothing, and how to appreciate the little that we had.
But did we have so little? I remember the songs and games we played in the car on Sunday drives, the tricks we taught our extremely lovable and intelligent dog, even if she was just a mutt, and making do with what we had. I don't remember hearing many complaints. We appreciated life and the bounty that we had. We picked wild asparagus, rhubarb, berries and dandelion greens.
Little did he know that his simple gesture of blowing on the dandelion was increasing our harvest. The seeds that he helped distribute that day brought more food our way. For more information regarding the lowly dandelion and the mighty benefits read:
The Best things in Life are Free
I hope you get an opportunity to enjoy the wealth of free gifts that come our way, even if it just a child's smile or a loved one's hug. There is much to be grateful for.
