To all you moms out there: Happy Mother’s Day!
There is no more important job in the world than that of being a mother. I’ve been blessed with a great Mom, a beautiful soul, and the hardest working person I know. Work? Nothing comes close to the work a mother puts in to raising her family. Remember to appreciate your mom’s, respect them for who they are, and cherish every moment you have with them, both the good and the bad, because how you look and what you are deep down inside has a lot to do with your mom. As a son to a proud mother, I’ve learned to look past what I see as criticism, and as I continue to evolve as an adult, I’m understating more so than ever that I’m loved more than I can imagine, even though I may not fully understand this love until I become a parent one day.
Let us stop and give thanks to the special people we call. . . Mom!!
In spirit of Mother’s Day I’d like to share a video called, “Reflections of Motherhood”, a video made by Canadian Marketing company Un-Marketing. Enjoy.
Here’s this week’s great reads from around the personal finance blogosphere.
GMBMFB – Why Quebec students need to stop striking is a very well complied post by Krystal which came under some heat, and rather turned into a personal argument. People, it’s just an opinion of one person, no need to get all personal.
Bargain Moose - Need a mother’s gift, but on a tight budget? Here are 7 frugal mother’s day gift ideas.
Untemplater – Sam is taking a sabbatical and possibly never coming back! One of his biggest fears is looking back on life and regretting not taking more chances. So, he’s thinking of not going back to work and rather continuing to work for himself by continuing to build his online empire and consulting services.
20′s Finances – Summer is coming and the months of hot temperatures and increasing electricity use are nearly here, so here’s a great post on how to lower your electric bill.
Modest Money – Summer is around the corner, and there’s not better time to earn some cash on the side. Here’s a post on 5 wacky ways to earn side income during the summer.
Sustainable PF – A neat post and I learned what crowd funding is and how it works. For all you small business owners, make sure you read this post, it may be worthwhile benefit for your small business in the future.
The Financial Blogger – How important is job security for you? Job security when you are young is not all that it’s made up to be, because staying in your job too long and getting 4% raises per year wont get you ahead. So, do you care about job security?
Yes, I’m Cheap – Sandy writes a post on Spirit Airlines charging $100 baggage fees. That’s high anyway you slice it, and a total highway robbery. Earlier in the year I wrote about how airlines charge to check bags = one big cash grab.
Thanks for stopping by and reading. Enjoy this special day with your Mom, and again Happy Mother’s Day 2012.
