Have you lost any loved ones that were in the military?

I am a member of what we call a Gold Star Family. 🌟

My youngest brother died in a plane crash along with a lot of other soldiers back on December 12, 1985.

Every year there is a memorial ceremony at the Fort Campbell military base for all of us Gold Star Family members.

It’s a great honor for us and totally awesome that my brother and his fallen comrades are still remembered and celebrated.

This year is going to be a bit different because in January my mother passed away. Every year we talk to other families that have lost family members but this year we did as well.

I will be writing a few posts next week as we travel to and attend the ceremonies. For today I am going to share some pictures of earlier trips.

As you can imagine the lose of my brother right before the Christmas holiday has always made the holiday less of a Merry Christmas time.

I am glad the Army still has these memorial services every year for our families. My brother was very proud to be in the Army and loved serving our country. He lost his life protecting the freedoms we are blessed to have here in America.

Have you lost a loved one in the military?

Have a super wonderful day.

I hate raking leaves.

I been living with my elderly Dad and helping take care of him for a while now. One of the hardest parts is all the yard work. I never have liked yard work and especially hate raking leaves. I love my Dad and want to help him stay living in his house for as long as possible. He is 91 and can barely walk so he can’t take care of the yard anymore.

I am one of those introverted people who enjoys reading books and doing research online. One reason I decided to write this post is to see how a picture from my new phone will look in a blog post. My old phone died and I bought a new Moto G6. It is not a fancy phone but it is all I need in a phone.

This is my first post here on WordPress using the upgraded blog post builder as well. Took me a few try’s to get started but I do think I will like it.

Anyway, have a super wonderful day.

Happy Thanksgiving Day

Here in America we have a yearly holiday we call Thanksgiving. I am sure there are a lot of traditions that go with this holiday that are different for each family and group of people. The main ideal is to have a day to give thanks for family and friends and all the blessings that God has given us.

So I wish all my American followers a Happy Thanksgiving Day.

And to everyone else I also wish you a Happy Thanksgiving as well.

What’s on your mind today?

It is cold here and I am just sitting around watching some news on television. I see a lot of things happening here in my country of America the disturbs me on the news so I just thought I’d shot out this post and ask you what’s on your mind today?

I am one of those introverts that have a lot on my mind, I’m thinking all the time.

If we were sitting around like the people in the picture and having a conversation what would you want to have a conversation about?

I like to talk about making money with an affiliate membership program and financial freedom but most people don’t, talking about money and financial freedom makes a lot of people feel uncomfortable.

Here in America we have two political parties and that is causing a lot of problems here in our country. It is like a war going on between two different ways of thinking and this makes it hard to have a conversation with people about political stuff. I don’t like either party so I am what is called an independent. So people want me to choose their side but I can’t so again having a conversation about all the hate between the two sides is very difficult.

Fires, floods and all the crazy weather mother nature is hitting us with makes me sad too. I hate seeing people lose all their worldly treasures in a weather related event.

So this is a few of the things that are on my mind.

What’s on your mind?

The financial independence movement.

Have any of you heard about the financial independence movement?

I came across some blogs who write about becoming financially independent so they can retire early. They call their movement F.I.R.E.

There are a lot of these bloggers who have retired early by investing in the stock market and some investing in real estate. Some of them have done it with residual income like I am teaching here with this blog of mine.

I am glad to learn that a lot of people think like I do and hate their job enough to build a life time residual income instead of working their whole life away.

Let’s have a conversion about financial independence.

Have a super wonderful day.

Carving Pumpkins for Halloween.

My granddaughters got to carve some pumpkins for Halloween over the weekend at their uncles house. He also had paint for them so they did some painting on them too. We had a lot of fun, I just took the one picture of them.


How many of you will be carving up some pumpkins for Halloween?
