Long Weekend Reading – Giving thanks and recognizing great blogs
With the fall season upon us, I’ve been thinking it’s a good time to review my financial plan and objectives for 2012 as this year heads into the homestretch. I’ll be working on that over the next few weeks and likely post a few articles about what I’ve been thinking about. Stay tuned. Geez, Thanksgiving this weekend…hard to believe…less than 3 months until 2013…
As they say, time flies, which is why it’s important to savour every day you have with those you care about. In our family, we lots to be thankful for. I hope whatever you do this weekend, you take time to reflect and give thanks for the joys in your life that probably get overlooked much more than they should. I know I’ll be doing that this weekend.
However you spend this weekend, make it count and enjoy.
