Life is full of lessons

I would be a professional student if I could.  Classrooms, learning, lots of knowledge.  But there are some things you just can’t learn in school!  Which brings us to this week’s Tuesday Topics, as we’re down to #4.

Life. Love.Lauren

  1. Pets relieve stress.  At the end of the day, after working for 12+ hours, caring for an ailing parent, and dealing with frustrated clients all day, the adoration found in a pet is priceless, and better than any psychologist’s couch!

    No matter how much I want to be left alone, he insists on cuddling to make me feel better

  2. Never use credit cards.  Seriously.  Pay cash whenever you can, and save the plastic for automotive or appliance emergencies.
  3. They may drive you nuts, but they’re the only family you’ve got.  Value the time you have with them, because it’s never enough.  At the same time, you need to know your limits.
  4. You have a second family, not blood related, that is the one you choose to “do life” with.  You know, the girlfriend that will be by your side when you’re both too senile to remember your shared past.  The families that were there when your kids were growing up.  Or you went through that breakup.  Or you lost that job.  And sometimes, yes sometimes, this family is more valuable than the one you received at birth.
