This time around Brian and I have had a lot less to buy to get ready for Hannah's arrival, which has been really nice. I've also scored some good deals too, like a working Medela pump at a garage sale for only $5. At the same time, I've been presented with multiple situations in which my financial help has been needed, and it's felt really good to be able to help out.
I have to be honest, sometimes I find myself holding onto "my money" a little too tightly. Brian and I each get a set amount of money to spend as we wish each month, and sometimes I find myself becoming a tight wade. But reality is, I have more than enough. Me holding onto my money too tightly isn't the best idea. Saving is always good, but I also feel my eyes need to be opened as to how I can help when it's needed.
Buying things for ourselves can be a nice treat, but we should also have our eyes opened to ways to help others too. You never know how you simple act of kindness can impact someone's life for the better.
And, of course, one picture with this guy. : )
