journal says: As a young couple, we were cash poor but rich in love and energy. We brought our first newborn home to a studio apartment stuffed to the brim with all the things that come with a baby! While I worked part time and Chip working 2 jobs, we made every dollar stretch. Sometimes it was frustrating when we found ourselves wishing for more room in our finances, but we looked for ways to make due. We clipped coupons, bought 50 packages of newborn diapers on clearance for $1.00 a pack, carpooled, I worked temporary jobs: election worker one day a year, babysitting, office management, bulk mail for advertising campaigns. During those early years of our family, I regretted not having more cash to have the freedom to do "fun" things. After 27 years and realizing that hindsight is 20/20, I long for the days when the kids were my constant companions and we felt indulgent when the cookie shop at the mall was selling their treats at clearance. Sometimes when we think we are lacking something, we find we are at our most resourceful. Experiencing both thick and thin, I remind myself to be grateful for every season and make the best of each moment.
