Do you worry a lot? About really serious things or mediocre or maybe even petty things, which would mean then you pretty much worry about everything and anything, wouldn't it?
I confess there are some things that I do worry about. Yes, there are some that come and go -like fleeting thoughts in my mind when I deem them not worth the effort to give a fat rats behind about.
There are other things too that I do worry about all the time but I try to keep them down to the dull roar level in the back of my mind. These are the general concerns that I think everyone has pertaining to family, friends and such. It's not that they aren't important but more that they are there on a constant basis, things that are totally beyond my control -which I have accepted about those issues -and therefore, unless something major trips a trigger there, they stay on low-level annoyance status.
Lately though, there's been something that does worry me a good bit -and it pertains to younger daughter here, Miss Mandy. Surprise, surprise too in that this doesn't concern the issues I have with her husband, the lovely (NOT) son-in-law for a change.
I know she and the SIL have a lot of financial issues and as such, they have never given any thought to things like insurance on themselves. Money, plus at their ages they are still often in that phase of believing they are immortal; that they will be here forever.
I really wish -and I hope I can get this across to Mandy (soon, too) that this is a commodity EVERYONE should have at least some insurance. I know it's an expense we all often bypass but gee, even some smallish policy of term life insurance -which generally is the most affordable insurance option -can be purchased for a very reasonable price.
With her planning a trip in mid-March now to Phoenix and from there, going up to Nevada to spend some time with her Dad and step-mother, I would hope that I can convince her to look into an inexpensive policy for herself and really, she definitely should consider investing in one for the SIL as well.
I worry -a lot -about the grandkids and how -if something were to happen to Mandy or to Bill -how we would be able to manage in all respects -beyond the grief that something like that would bring on its on, but to all the various expenses a sudden death could bring on to the family too.
And I, for one, would definitely rest a whole lot easier if she would look into this and enroll herself and Bill in a policy of this type. While I'm on that track I'd like to see my son as well as my older daughter check into a purchase of this type too.
Better to be safe than sorry, is my opinion on this matter.
What say you?
