Where There’s a Will

NO WAY!!  I’ve been named in my grandfather’s will.  I am completely surprised.  I have always presumed I wouldn’t inherit anything, ever in my life.  Presently, I have no idea exactly what I will receive but in the very least, it should be around $4000.  This will help get my oldest son’s rent up-to-date and get me so much closer to achieving $0 debt.  I thought I was nearly there a couple months ago, but life keeps throwing expenses at me and I somehow still owe $7000 on my damned credit cards.

Another surprise from all of this is just how much I’m still grieving over the loss of my mother.  Watching my Papa suffer like Mom did…and her mother before her, raised those feelings to the surface this past fall.  Now the inheritance reminds me that I’m receiving this windfall because my mother isn’t here.  If I had my choice, I would rather see her receive her fair share of the funds and watch her enjoy another family Christmas.

But…as always, I don’t get to choose.  I get to adapt, adjust and be grateful for what I do have.  Keep moving forward…
