Silver Star or the roller coaster of precious metals

The Silver Star is a roller coaster in Rust, Germany.  The precious metal market is a roller coaster the world has been riding these recent weeks.  Click, click, click... the ride has been going up the hill.  And now... WHEEEEE!!!  Silver is down $4.00 today.  You may or may not have followed my journey of selling my silver.  It certainly can be Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.  You may or may not know I convinced my father to open his safe after 20 years and let me sell his silver.  Anyway, it's all on me now.  I promised my dad I'd make him some money and now I must keep my word.  Because you may or may not know that keeping my word is one of my strong character traits.  So, tonight I will be busy photographing, describing, sorting, uploading and just plain DEALING with the silver coins my father has entrusted to me.  I'm feeling pressure to do well for my father and my husband.  It is the strangest thing.  This little hobby I've had, selling my clutter on eBay, has become important to two men who are so important to me.  I don't want to let them down.  I'm feeling pressure, also, because time may be short for the silver BOOM.  So, if you've been on the fence about this money making scheme, don't wait too much longer. 

I'm just sayin'.  Wheeeeeeee...

  6. Just tried to comment over on your Gratitude list, but couldn't get the link to work so...I'll leave my thoughts here. Thank you for stopping by my place with your kind words. I'm glad you've decided to start keeping a gratitude list. You asked if there was something special about Monday--many of us were inspired by Ann Voskamp to start keeping a gratitude list. She posts a link up at her site every Monday at www.aholyexperience. com. She recently published a book One Thousand Gifts which I recommend highly. This practice of gratitude has been really life changing for me and for so many others.

    Here's the link to the classic archived post from Ann about the practice of giving thanks: Blessings, Nancy
