Impact on you family

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
I am starting yo see to see a slight difference in my children as far as the way the view money. I think because i'm trying to be as frugal as possiable. My daughter's are now asking if we can buy our clothing at a local used clothing store - my oldest said she had worn a nice namebrand sweatshirt to school and her friends want to know where she had purchased it -she did not have the heart to tell them it was used -but she has found out that alot of her friends also shop there. She also made a comment last time we had gone grocery shopping -she did not know how I paid for everything -she also said this is something she is concerned about for the future. I told her - no credit card and donot buy anything unless you can pay cash for it. And to really decide wether it is a want or need.She thought making your own cleaners and soap was cool -not only was it a sciece experiment , but she is all about going green.My kids are really hard worker's -they cut wood and sell it so they have money for their activities we can not afford . my son is called almost daily to work for someone - and he hourds it -like a good boy. My youngest helps me out alot- she helps her sibilings with the wood , mowing the church and cemetary and we have 2.5 hours of mowing ourselve. I thank god the are so wonderful. Well everyone stay warm I'm a freezn here in NE only 18 with wind . BobbI -ne

    Bobbi, You surely have the family on the right track. Your angels sound like they really know about money and where it comes from and how to use it wisely. You are certainly blessed also.

    It's so great to hear from others that were blessed with very sweet angels to care for here on Earth. When i was 40 something and had been battling cancer and found out I was PG I about died! When I found out it was twins I was beyond myself for weeks. then the Lord took over and I thought at first why would he burden me with this little did I know this was a great blessing not a burden at all! My daughters bless me daily and amaze me constantly. they do most of the work here at home and on the farm. I'm just along for the ride! Now that they are 15 going on 16 I now fear they will be gone before I know it. Our phone rings and the e-mails pour in for my Angels to go help others which they do often. My boys had trouble finding jobs locally but not my girls! They have a waiting list of folks that want to hire them! I've battled cancer for more than 30 years and don't know how much longer I can continue to win my battle but I'm grateful for this last great blessing my Father in Heaven gave me. I love all my boys but I know where my girl's came from and that they were meant to bless my life. They seem to be able to do anything! They can handle much better than I ever could. they work so hard and learn so well anything they try to do. I thank my Father daily for what i thought was going to be a burden! So glad you've been blessed as well!
