Earlier this year, things were not looking good. We had a health scare due to an autoimmune disease my sister was diagnosed with. My previous part-time gig as a consultant was not going well. I thought money would be tight and a nice vacation was out of question.
Today, we know that my sister's condition is under control. Her lab tests have improved and her doctor is not concerned. Thank God!
I now have a new job which is paying real well and I was able to plan a nice vacation in the US.
A health scare, a job loss, income reduction, major repair bill, anything unexpected can happen anytime... This is why I like to be financially secure. So, first my sister's health improvement, then my new job are true blessings and I am so thankful for them.
