This picture speaks volumes for millions now and even louder for me. I was recently laid off from my job and even with one of my best friends losing his job not but 8 months ago it didn't send off a blaring alarm in my head or wallet to save more and buckle down. Today while standing in line to apply for unemployment and foodstamps I found myself mentally kicking my own ass for not preparing for such a time. I've always heard before "Plan for the worst and hope for the best!" but I guess I thought my life was just fine until Tuesday February 24th at 8:33 AM when I was delivered the lethal blow of lay off. I always like to think very highly of myself but I have to tell you that standing amongst what society deems as the 'low income' and welfare receipients today was a truly humbling experience. If you don't learn anything from my message learn this, "Tomorrow is NOT promised to be as grand as you think today is so SAVE FOR THAT RAINY DAY cause it will come."
ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END…
