From my journal dated October 29, 2002:
Finances are running a low now. I have a whole different attitude toward money than I used to. It’s just a tool to take care of our family. It’s never been a huge focus for us…otherwise I would have gone to work all these years instead of homeschooling our kids.
Money can’t buy what I want most – to have Jason back. It couldn’t buy protection for him against a stupid, thoughtless, drunk driver. After that, what’s money worth? It’s less than nothing in the whole scheme of things…other than a tool.
