Spring! Money?

This clump of allium is always a happy surprise later in spring.

The other day, a friend of mine posted a picture of crocuses blooming in her yard. That’s on top of a string of beautiful weather that we Iowans have been delighting in. It’s a good reminder for all of us that many of the best things in life are completely independent of money.

Most people have days (or weeks or months) when money is tight, or money decisions are overwhelming, or it’s clear that you will need to choose to do without something that you normally spend money on, When those days occur, let’s all remind ourselves of the crocuses, or the greening grass, or the beautiful sunset, or the smiles and hugs of our children.

Money does matter. But it is never the most important thing. It is encouraging to remember that.
