Sunday Scribblings " Money"


Sunday Scribblings " Money"

There's a huge hoopla here in Canada now that our dollar has risen to an all time high never before documented. A huge fear everyone will scramble to do across border shopping, affecting our economy. I have my own money issues and look forward to a few deals here at home.

The Cost


I’ve had it,

Fiscal Comfort,

With a price

Of anguish

Still frugal

Yet generous

Everything I needed

And more

Was available

For the Taking

Or the asking

Then one day

It wasn’t

But somehow

The universe provided

Deeply humbled

By Carnations

Instead of roses

Videos

Instead of theaters

Homemade

Instead of tailor made

Spiritual

Instead of material

Necessity

Instead of frivolity

The taker

Instead of the giver

The needy

Instead of the affluent

Cautious

Instead of careless

All in exchange

For Peace!

One day I will have it all again, along with serenity!

I love this post & the one before. A strong reminder that what we have is relative and we can live in gratitude and abundance knowing that our basic needs are well met. Peace & love, JP/deb
