Well another year is almost coming to a close, and even worse tax time is almost upon us!! I don't know why, but as soon as New Year's Eve is upon us, I start fretting about paying taxes again on money that I already paid taxes on when I was working. Something about that just doesn't seem right. Hindsight, I should have taken everything in cash when I was working, put it in my canning jars, and buried it in my back yard. Most people would say: "Oh no, Sandi, you need to invest it to make more with interest." Well, have you looked at how much interest you are getting on your savings lately, or checked out your 401K to see how much you are making on your investments??? Trust me, the government is double-dipping on my money with more in taxes than any interest I am receiving on my investments. Don't get me wrong, I'm a firm believer about saving your money. It's just that instead of canning my vegetables all those years (to put money in savings), I should have just put my money in the jars (and of course, I would have sealed the jars because we all know that money gets really dirty if you just put it in a box).
Oh my gosh, here I go showing my age again by rambling on about a subject that has nothing to do with what you came here for -- but at least it is good advice!! Tomorrow is my husband's birthday, and of course I waited until the last minute to make his card, but it's done. YES, YES, YES -- I hate doing masculine cards (doesn't everybody????). So this is the best I could come up with:
"I will remember the works of the Lord; surely I will remember Your wonders of old."
-- Psalm 77:11
