Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

May The Force Be With You

It seems that intense bouts of happiness render me fairly useless in the writing arena. It isn’t that I have nothing to update, it just suddenly all seems less important than mooning over Bob love and planning weddings with a red dress and a band bent on jazz.

Our wedding budget seems less tangible lately, and I find myself thinking longingly of Visa, Discover, and Mastercard. (And let us not forget JC Penney.)

I hadn’t any idea that weddings involved all the things that they actually involve. While in discussion with mister Bob last night, he muttered something along the same line (furthered by muttering something like “money …..lots of money….”)

I find myself thinking of Star Wars, and the “force”. I’m wishing: “May the Force of Not Using Credit Cards Be With Me.”

This was a struggle for us too. You want your day to be so awesome but you do not want to pay for it for the rest of your life!

Good luck with the force. I am sure it'll be with ya!
