You taught us to stop chasing dreams and start forging them
Digging them from the dirt with our bare hands
Carving them from an old piece of wood and squinting while the sweat stings the places where the splinters are.
We learned that our greatest getting out of debt tool and wealth building tool was our income
We learned that “10 pounds earned and 11 pounds spent was one pound of misery
And 10 pounds earned and 9 pounds spent was 1 pound of happiness”.*
We learned that grit and character are built by getting up and doings things we don’t want to another day
We learned that our futures are in our hands
Even while they are in God’s.
Even money can be of faith.
And a dream can get you through anything.
