  1. My condolences to the demise of your friend's newphew, and your friend family.

    I think money is really important in caregiving. But I agree with you we need to live the present with no regrets.

    I was worried about my parents cost of palliative care, although my elder brother assure me all is fine

    I remember being in charge of respite nurse arrangement, and it goes to thousands in a fortnight.

    We have 3, to share the burden, and I wonder how I can arrange my passing on since my son is my only child.

    I remembered selling my policy to raise cash, and I heard about friends who sold their property to raise money for medical care overseas.

    Sigh…

    Yet, if u ask me. Money is a problem, but we are in Singapore, we should get reasonable medical care if we are willing to buckle down …

    I know of people who dump their parents, even before their deminse

    Some suck the blood out of their parents and is a leech

    No end to how low it gets

    I always remind myself to let go whenever I am upset with my loved ones.

    Life is too short to bear a grudge

    1. Hi SI, thanks for the comments. In fact, my FIL just passed away this month of whom, we were his caregiver. Yes, life is short to be unforgiven.

  2. Life is indeed unpredictable. That is why I am thankful to God every night for letting me live to expeeience a full day, hopefully of benefit to someone. Similarly, I thank God for letting me survive the night to start a brand new day.

    I worry for my 4 year old boy and what I am able to leave him. As I am divorced, I am worried if I pass on before he is 21 years old, my ex-spouse may mishandle my son's finances. Then I pause…and I commit to God that He will make a way.

  3. Yes, life is unpredictable and we can go anytime when the Maker calls us back. But I think we should still be financially prudent and accumulate our portfolio under the assumption we will live to our eighties or nineties to avoid being a burden to our children then. Also of equal importance is to appreciate and cherish each and every second that we have in this world and make sure we spend quality time with the important persons in our lives and leave behind no regrets.

    1. Hi ADX, yes agree with you. End of the day, it must be a balance and quality time not materialistic is impt. Not over thrifty and not over spendthrift.
