For our security

Friday, June 13, 2008

When I arrived home today, I saw my 82 years old grand mother crying. When I asked her why is she crying, she told me that she feels bad because her friend would no longer be leaving near our house since she will be send by her kids to a house care for old people.

My grandmother was not actually crying because she will be loosing her friend. But she was crying for the plight of her friend. Would you believe she still has three children that has the capacity (financially and physically) to take care of her but instead her kids decided to send her to a house care. My grandmother kept on saying how lucky she was because a lot of people love her and that we all of us (from her children to her grand children) are always there to take care of her.

While I was talking to my grandmother, it made me think also of my and Howell’s future. Right now, we don’t have an insurance that will cover anything for us in the future. I know that our dear daughter will take care of us when we grow old but it wouldn’t hurt to have a security not just for our sake but for our daughter’s sake also just in case anything happens to us.

So as soon as I was able to get hold of a computer, I immediately checked for life insurance online to see what our options are. I better discuss this with Howell when he gets back from Majuro.
