How Much for a Can of Soup?

Early morning dentist appointment for cleaning and x-rays. I love when I get a good report. I want to keep my teeth as long as possible. If I should ever need dentures they would have to do surgery first to remove the extra bones I have in my mouth. Ouch! So I try to take good care of the teeth I do have.

Stopped to pick up some cat food at the store and I needed a can of broccoli cheese soup. Yikes! $2.00 a can!! Inflation is really hurting people like me, who have a fixed income that just covers living expenses. I feel so sorry for those who are raising children right now. Putting my faith in God and his promise to provide what is needed. Time now for everyone to focus more on what is needed and put aside wants.

We’ve become a nation of more is better. So this morning, as I wait for the floride treatment to continue working, I’m not enjoying a cup of tea. Instead I offer a simple prayer to God, asking for Him to intervene with our government leaders to see the needs of the people instead of focusing on going further in debt, and filling the pockets of those who are twisting laws to increase their wealth. May your heart be filled with hope, happiness, and gratitude for what God has provided today.
