I could really use a pot of gold

It was hard to come back to work yesterday after five glorious days off from work.  I did a lot of shopping (great deals with coupons were to be had) and cooked/baked and slept.  It was wonderful.  But back to work and getting back into a routine, which went out the window over the holiday.  Strange how easy it is to slip out of a pattern, but how hard it sometimes feels to get back on track.

Anyway, today is Wishcasting Wednesday, and Jamie asks us:

"All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy." - Spike Milliga

I wish for the treasure of enough money to thrive rather than barely get by.  Currently, money is extremely tight and any house issue turns into a crisis with lots of stress and anxiety as I freak out about where the money will come from and why does this keep happening?  I realize that ups and downs are a part of life.  I do understand how lucky I am to have a job that provides a roof over my head and food on the table.  And I know I could probably extend my budget a little further to make it last longer...but it would be nice to have a little reprieve.  Not a ton of money, just enough to live without constant fear of what could happen.

What do you wish for?

Ditto big time! I've been in TX for over a year now and my husband still has been unable to find a job. Supporting us on one income has become extremely difficult and the stress is causing me health issues. Rent is late and I have to rush home to pay the water bill before it is shut off today. The car needs repairs... the list goes on. But I know that "this too shall pass." As you wish for yourself, so I also wish for all of us!

I can seriously relate to your treasured wish! As you wish for yourself, I so lovingly wish for you as well.

As you wish for yourself, I wish for you - I hope it comes true soon!

I'm late reading some of these great wishes, but I don't think this is just a Wednesday deal anyway! I've been there and it sucks! As you wish for yourself, I soooooo wish for you also!

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!

Your wish is my wish also. Money can be so trying. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

I hear you Mare - I've always figured that the people who say that money isn't important are the ones who've always had it in their lives, and don't know what living without it is like.

The reality is that money is a form of energy, and we need it to give us the fullest range of choices possible in any given situation. There's no shame in acknowledging a want or a need for it (and I smile to myself as I say that, because even as I'm typing, something inside me is squirming... just a little)

So. May the money you need to have the choices you want and the peace of mind you crave manifest in your life - whether through a better job, or some other avenue. As you wish for yourself, so I truly wish for you!

A good in flow would be nice. It would take our minds from the worry and into the joyful planning.
As Mare wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.
