Money Can't Buy You Happiness...

Some people say that “money can’t buy you happiness”.

 

And that’s 100% true.

 

It’s the things that money can buy which can make you happy.

  

My kids were really spoiled this Christmas. I think everyone’s were. But it’s hard to convey to them that the real meaning of Christmas isn’t about opening presents, but rather spending time with family and friends and rejoicing in the birth of Jesus. Even those of you who don’t share the same faith can probably agree that sharing time with friends/family is what it’s all about. But explain that to kids who see images of cool new toys on TV and see if they will be happy with a single, $8 toy for Christmas, and spending time with extended relatives playing board games?

 

I need to move to the country, with a barn and some cattle and for Christmas they each get a roll of nickels and a new shovel, as compared to $300 worth of toys that next year will be obsolete.

 

I’ll take a 1959 Porsche 356 Speedster if any of you are willing to donate. Can't buy me happiness... I imagine waking up on a warm Saturday morning and driving up the coast to Santa Barbara in this to get a cup of coffee. No radio, just listening to the engine purrrrrrrrr.

 

I also have Fri & Sat completely off... any ideas of where I should go/do?
