This morning, I was thinking about something my Dad told me a very long time ago. My Dad was someone who didn't talk a lot, but certainly had some good advice when I needed it. My husband told me after my Dad passed that he used to admire that my Dad didn't always speak loudly but spoke volumes with his eyes. I love that!!! So, what my Dad told me was this: when life throws you a curve ball, hit it out of the ball park. I'm not sure why I was thinking about this today, but I really love that piece of advice.
I wish I followed it more. I tend to initially freak out when something goes astray, but then after I sit and think, I listen to my more sensible side and I learn to relax. Life is FULL of curve balls. Things rarely go as planned and I am learning, that is okay. When things happen, it may not be our plan. It is part of a bigger plan that we may never understand. I have learned that we have to accept it and make the best of the situation.
I hope that I am able to teach my daughters to accept curve balls. I see how they react when things don't go their way, not pretty!!! I know this is part of childhood and learning. As they get older and more mature, I want them to be able to go with the flow and adapt to any situation. How do you teach that skill? For now, I will pass on my Dad's advice and hope that they take it to heart.
So, my thought was to do something fun for my Friday blogs. I am going to try doing what I call Fabulous Friday Finds. I will put up a link to a site or to an item that I think is fabulous. If you'd like to add something, please leave a comment. This could be really fun and a great way to share some fabulous finds.
Here is my first Fabulous Find. I hope you enjoy! Have a wonderful Friday!!!
This is a great site with tons of fab resources. We can all use a little help when it comes to finding ways to save money. I think moneysavingmom.com has wonderful advice and is certainly worth looking at. Take a peek and who knows, maybe you'll find your frugal side.
