Teaching you to embrace today while making yourself a millionaire!

I wish I would have understood how easy it is to become a millionaire by starting to save small amounts of money when I was younger...

I feel compelled to share the simple concepts you can apply today....

Lesson learned

On Sunday September 14th, we were in the path of hurricane Ike. This was quite a surprise as we live 2000 miles from the gulf. We had winds over 80 miles an hour, trees were snapping like twigs and shingles were flying off houses. There were 4 deaths from the storm - reminding us again how fragile life can be. We lost electric power and phone services for 5 days. Cell towers were intermittent. So we were pretty cut off from the world. Fortunately, it was 68 degrees and we had clean water!

Lessons learned from this experience:

1. Life is precious and we never know how much time we have left.
Embrace the people you love always!

2. People are good - neighbors pulled together, helped with kids, cooked on grills and shared, helped clean up yards, checked on each other and never complained.
We felt fortunate - it could have been much worse!

3. We didn't miss TV, radio or computers. We spent time playing games, reading and talking.
We didn't miss all the distractions and we enjoyed the quiet and time together!

4. All the material items we place so much value on - meant absolutely nothing to us.
We were so grateful for the people and animals in our lives.

I hope you are all safe, warm, and healthy.

Stay tuned........
