I had to write this down the moment my little one went to sleep because it was too cute and funny and pensive all at the same time. And after I read it back, I thought you might get a kick out of it too. Do you have a worrier? How do you handle their concerns?
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about something so important: money! Surprised? It’s not necessarily something people like to talk about, but it is very important to discuss it with your children. I’m sure some of you are thinking, ‘well, not when they are so young’. And to that response I have to disagree.
There are some things that I can honestly say have no rhyme or reason in my mind. I am a person of faith and I believe in God, but sometimes, it’s hard to stay strong and know that we are not meant to have all the answers as mere humans. It’s unfair at times. It’s downright heartbreaking. It is hard to keep going and keep going strong. But with the faith and love of your family and friends, you carry on.
Do you remember the first movie you saw with the love of your life?
I do. (No pun intended.)
There’s something about you I can’t explain.
You are such a force and such a weakness of mine.
Sometimes my days do not feel complete without you
When I can’t have you, I feel weary and drained.
Here we are at the start of a new year and holiday parties and get-togethers done. Kids are back at school and work is back in full force. Isn’t it wonderful to catch up with loved ones during the holidays? I had some special moments this year, and I hope you did too. It took a long time for the snow to hit the ground here in Montreal, but now it’s here! And with the bitter cold on some days, it feels like a proper Canadian winter.
