We’ve been dreaming. Dreaming about a time when we might own our own home. For many of you, this is a dream that you work on in your 20’s or 30’s. For us, it is something to be aimed for as we come into retirement years. We’ve been debating investment costs versus leasing. Should we invest our money towards a revenue stream or take out the mortgage and see this as an investment for later years and hope that they real estate appreciation provides us as good or better a return. We’re leaning towards buying and the market is soft where we are looking!!
Secondly, we’ve been dreaming about owning our own furniture. Now if you are unfamiliar with the model of allowance and provision related to Salvation Army officers you will no doubt think this is rather strange. But it is what it is, and this is our reality. So we’ve been dreaming about having furniture that someone else didn’t buy. I can hardly wait! When we were in Pennsylvania we looked at some gorgeous Amish furniture and I found myself drooling over a couple of pieces. I loved the desk below!
Yes, one day our dreams may come true. And I may have my own little garden to putter around in… wouldn’t that be wonderful?
