taxes.jpg I’m preparing our taxes for our accountant.

Even when we are getting a refund, taxes don’t put me in a great mood.

I look at Social Security withholdings on my husband’s W-2.  Then I remember that we are the generation that will somehow support the aging ‘Baby Boomer’ generation.

Social Security?  I’m not feeling all that secure about the nation’s ‘Social Security’ program…

But then I pause.  Mine is not to figure out how…

There are accountants and lawmakers and government workers and Social Security officials and managers and financial whizzes and assistants and assistants-to-assistants to work that out… Hmmm, maybe that is part of the problem.

But I digress…

Mine is to smile and give thanks that I get to see the world through a 4- year- old’s eyes.

Besides, you know what they say, ‘It’s only money’!
