surely oh-eight will bring about opportunity to nourish the seeds that have been planted thus far. surely there will be more music, more dance. more singing in the shower, more singing on stage. more time to appreciate what i have now. less time to worry about what isn't. more food to eat. more lives to touch. more friends to love. more stamps in my passport. finally taking my flying trapeze lessons. finally got health insurance, let's go to the doctors!!! take care of this tooth that gave me a bit of grief this summer.... take care of myself in better way.
i really don't know what the new year has to offer, and what i will offer in return. but i do believe the nursing of wounded hearts back to health has run its course in oh-seven. so i will look forward, if nothing else, to enjoying what i do the way that i do it, and if someone becomes interested enough to take my hand and walkrundanceswingfloatpray&laugh with me along the journey, by all means you all know what kind of gurl i am!... i'm around.
and so. HERE'S to God's grace in the new year, and ALLLLL that it entails! SELAH.

So! As I'm sure most, if not all of us have personal credit card debt that affects our daily lives (and wallets), I wanted to encourage you to take a proactive step in lowering your current APR rate (unless, of course, it's currently zero then by all means, disregard)!
Today I thought about the fact that my zero percent rate was going to expire soon, so (just for fun!) I called up my CC company to ask if they would extend the zero percent interest rate for a few months. The APR specialist agreed that this was a good idea, but said he wasn't able to extend the zero percent rate for me. He DID, however, offer to look into the significantly low promotional rates and offered me a 3% rate on all new purchases, noting that there are rates sometimes as low as 1% and when this one expires I can ask for another low promo rate! So, knowing that the difference between having a 3% rate as opposed to a 10% - 19% rate (as most people have) or higher can mean a world of tangible savings, I thought I'd at least pass the information on to those who want to call their own CC companies and ask for the lowest rate and/or fixed rate available today! ESPECIALLY considering the significant amount of CC purchases during this time of the year!
OH! I know some of you have heard this before, which I had as well, but there's a big difference between knowing and making it happen! Word!! Anyway, Happy Holidays and here's to being smart about throwing money away on interest! :)
