Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat

April 11, 2015

The Money Tree

The weekly challenge is AFLOAT. As I pondered on the suggestion, I came up with this. What if money grew on trees? What if we could just go out our back door and pick off what we needed for each day.? Money helps to keep people AFLOAT. It pays bills, buy food, clothing and to be able to purchase items needed for living on planet earth. Some squander their money, some save it, some share it, some hoard it and some are good stewards of it.

Downloads135Have you ever considered what you would do if you inherited a large amount of money? Sometimes there are people in our lives that we might want to help out of a financial dilemma. But then handingย  money over to someone who is not yet at a place of responsibility can be detrimental. We are not to love money, nor are we to abuse it or cause harm or neglect to others over it. I think if we work for it, and consider others that have need, we will prosper in many ways and it will keep us from drowning in debt and greed.

    I’m trying to stay afloat! If a large amount of money came my way (say, $50K) the first thing I’d do is get out of debt. I don’t have much debt at this point, but some non-insured medical expenses are coming down the road, and it will take some time to get rid of them. After that, I’d put half in the bank for emergencies, help out a friend who’s living solely on social security, and give the rest to a local charity that’s still helping people recover from Hurricane Ike. That’s what I’d do — at least today!

    Well, let’s be honest. I’d probably take a thousand and use it for some travel. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Linda..I hope you have that extra for some travel. We may not always succeed but we keep trying and do our best… Medical is out of sight these days. I also hope it will be minimal..

        I should have mentioned — there’s no real problem. It’s cataract surgery, but I opted for the laser rather than the medicare-covered scalpel surgery. Faster recovery, more accurate. Or so they say. I’ll find out!

    A money tree would be nice, but I didn’t see any at the garden center when I was there the other day. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Novel take on the prompt.

    Nice spin, I liked the reference to drowning in the last line.

    Like the interpretation. Wouldn’t it be fun to go out and pick some money off the tree and head around town handing it out? Yes. ๐Ÿ™‚
