I lived in Tampa, Fl 2 years ago. I had a government job and more than enough money to live on and life was great (I thought). I spent how I wanted and my husband and I did whatever we wanted whenever we wanted to. I did not have a care in the world. The only thing missing was not spending time with my little grand-daughter, although we did visit her often we missed 2 years of her life being so far away from her. Not to mention I hardly ever saw the rest of my family.
One day we decided to move to Georgia to be closer to the family. That's when all the fun started. We went through our savings pretty quickly and a year later we wound up with nothing left. We struggled a bit but we got through it. I got saved and became a Christian here and a year after that my husband got saved. My entire family goes to our church. We get to be together whenver we want to and we get to serve the lord together.
Now, I may not have all the money I did before, but I am definitely happier since coming to Georgia. My husband got a great, stress free job and I got a wonderful job I get to do from home. I spend all the time I want with my grand-daughter, and to top that off, I was in the delivery room with my daughter when she gave us our grandson. What I have now beats all the money we had that was very easily and quickly spent.
Yes, I truly believe money can't buy happiness.
