It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

It's good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure you haven't lost the things money can't buy.

George Lorimer

Many are focused on improving their credit score. Without a good credit score, it can be very difficult to get a loan, rent an apartment, or do basic things to make a living. Many people pay very close attention to their credit rating. They worry about it and change their lives in order to improve their credit score.

Money will buy you a bed, but not a good night's sleep, a house but not a home, a companion but not a friend.

Zig Ziglar

But I like to think that a majority of us understand that what is really important in life is not money or our possessions.  Family, health, love and even the opportunity to be alive today, are all greater gifts.  

Learn to appreciate what you have before time makes you appreciate what you had.


Money will not buy happiness. Money can buy external things, but true happiness comes from inside.

The key to happiness is to appreciate what you have.  When you are content with what you have and are thankful for it.  You will be happy.

Measure wealth not by the things which you have, but by 
the things you have for which you would not take money.

So true there are more important things than money in this world. It is good to just have the money you need for your basic needs and a few wants and learn to be content with that. So many other blessings around that are "free" like our health, family, nature, etc.

I appreciate the witty folk I have read and listen to. Zig and Nightengale are two I truly get inspired about. As I write that I was thinking of witty folk I have known who know how to say something to GET YOUR ATTENTION. AS I thought about that I realized something I have said in the past that YOU and a couple more of my Blogging friends are just as good at making a point. I just wanted to say THANKS@!

I had a cousin that focused so much on money that he lost his family. I pay attention to my credit rating but not at the expense of other things that are truly important.

Wouldn't take money for friends, family or my good health. Without them it would be a sad life.

Tom has really worked to improve his credit score since we met ... I'm proud of him, for sure. Once we find our new little home, I'm very sure our needs will be few.


MOney is helpful but not crucial to happiness. "Learn to appreciate what you have before time makes you appreciate what you had."
