As most of you know, over the past five years I have lost my Mom, my husband, and diagnosed with cancer. It’s been really hard. But oh the lessons I have learned from these heartaches. Things that I would get upset about in the past, no longer bother me. Some things are so insignificant in the whole scheme of things.
While I’ve never really thought of myself as being a materialistic minded person for the most part, I am even less so now. Does it really matter if we wear clothes from Wal-Mart or Dillards? (or any department store).
When I hear women complain about a bad hair day, etc. I often tell them, just be thankful you have hair. I”ve been through that hair loss thing twice and it has just crushed me.
Friends, material things do not matter. Materialism is another of American’s sins which is leading to our downfall.
