Have you ever wanted to...

sell everything, move to a third world country and do charity work? Sometimes I think about it. Seriously...look at how we live. Why? Why do we need everything we have? I have a 6 bedroom 4 bathroom house. Why? Why did I want to buy such a large house 5 years ago? That is the old Cheryl...Anna and Natalie sleep with me when Mike is away...and when he is home, they both sleep together in the guest room near our bedroom. Ha! Guestroom! Thats funny...Like we ever get guests anymore...Seriously...I question why? WHY? It just doesn't make sense anymore...

I agree with you on this one. Joe and I have had many talks the last 5 months about selling this house and putting some money we save into some long term goals for AOGF. While many around us are purchasing bigger and better, we find ourselves wanting less. Our post Grace attitude.
Love the new blog. Missed you while you were away, happy to have you back! marlena :)

Seriously, I have talked to more people that I can count, that think about this, AND that are actually doing it...Ok, maybe not a third world country doing charity work, but downsizing...and LOVING it!
