Do you remember sitting down with your parents and having a talk about the household budget or the dangers of credit cards? Did your parents talk to you about compound interest or the basics of investing? Chances are you don’t recall having these talks because they just didn’t happen. If they didn’t happen with us, there’s a good chance that these concepts are not being modeled by you to your own children.
There is beauty all around us here in this corner of Monadnock we call home. The leaves are currently working their magic, begging for my attention, asking me to consider the wisdom they have to share with me. I passed a row of three trees this morning. One tree was still green, another maroon and the third had mostly turned a yellow gold. All trees, but all different tree varieties. The oaks have yet to turn to their goldish brown. The maples are turning their brilliant colors. The beeches are yellow and will tenaciously hang on to those leaves all thru the winter. And have you noticed the ferns? There is a stunning clump of gold ferns near my home. They aren’t big and showy trees, but they are small and mighty in their own wonderful way.
