My pot of gold is my son, in August 2010 we found out he has NF1 and many other medical problems that go with it, he turn five in October and is not able to go to school and has no friends that he is able to play with, Am home with him and my husband works to two jobs to help play the medcial bills. So alot of time it is just the two of us, we have ups and downs just like today when I start to loss it with my son, he come up to me and said mommy I love you and I just want to marry you, am sorry I will try better. I take a breath and say I love you too, your my ture love, I hug and kiss him. He will live with NF1 the rest of his and the other problems that go with it, but I thank God that my son is here with me everyday.

My pot of Gold is my family, but especially my frugal husband, Danny. He has always had a knack for saving money, but especially loves to get things for free. He is always entering contests, playing radio and e-mail games for prizes and has had quite a bit of success. Since we both work full time and have 3 children, money is awlays tight. Our entire entertainment budget, and sometimes even our “gift” budget for special occasions (birthdays, anniversary and even Christmas) is almost entirely made up of what he wins. But other than his talents at winning games, he is the most loving, careing, thoughtful person I know. He is an amazing husband and father, and I don’t know what I would do without him. He is, and will always be, my Pot of Gold!

My husband and I started off the year great. We had just started trying to get pregnant in December and got pregnant the first month. So January 1st we were flying high, pregnant with our first child, and ready to begin a great year. Well, January 5th my husband’s mom had a brain aneurysm the size of a quarter and the doctors told us she might not make it. She went through a very risky brain surgery but made it. After 5 weeks in neuro-trama ICU, then to a rehab facility, she is now at home and doing well. Then,on February 17th, we lost our precious baby to a miscarriage. Several other difficult things have happened these past few months that left us asking God “Why?” It has been extremely difficult to say the least. But I am reminded today of just how blessed we are. I have a loving, caring, wonderful husband who has been so supportive during this time. Our mom is alive and doing well. We have a roof over our heads, good cars to drive, great jobs, wonderful friends and family, a great church family, and a really sweet puppy to lick away our tears. Despite all that we have been through this year, I can honestly say that God has blessed us more than we deserve!

What a cute idea! Lately my husband and I have been doing equine therapy with veterans at the VA a couple of times a week and started to branch out and work with homeless veterans. Since yesterday was Saint Patrick’s Day, we decided to ask the homeless veterans to tell us what their pot of gold is and the answers they came up with would make you cry. Most of them stated that it was the simple things in life that is their gold like looking at the sunrise, having a warm meal, and being able to work with our horses during therapy. These are marvelous people and made me realize how nobody is completely free from the risk of homelessness. Life really is about the little joys that we take for granted on a daily basis but would drastically miss if they were gone.

I’d been seeing all the replies to this post and was wondering ‘what is my pot of gold’? I had the opportunity to find that out last Thursday, March 10th. Out of the blue, I was laid off permanently from my payroll clerk job and it was effective immediately. I wasn’t the only one to lose my job that day but it was still hard not to be down about it. My pot of gold is my husband, children, family and my friends. My husband has been my biggest support and keeps telling me we’ll make it through okay; we may have to scrimp but we’ll be fine. My kids are my cheerleaders with their witty remarks that keeps me smiling. My friends and family were there that very same day to support me and give me someone to lean on and they listened while I sobbed and blubbered trying to make some sense of what just happened. I’m still getting the uplifting emails and texts from them and it helps me get through the days. I know this happened for a reason although I can’t quite see what that is right now. I guess I took for granted how special and important my family and friends are to me until I was put in this situation where I really needed them.

My Pot of Gold is my new baby! My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for almost a year we finally succeeded in November and couldn’t be happier. We then lost the baby in December, but we just found out we are pregnant again! God is good! So that is my Pot of Gold

My pot of gold is writing and Starbucks. It’s been a rough couple of years since I graduated college and moved halfway across the country to pursue a career that hasn’t really worked out. But I’m able to persevere by writing almost every day at my favorite Starbucks. I don’t know what I’d do without a pencil, paper and my favorite Starbucks barristas, who don’t charge me for coffee more often than not, because they know I can’t really afford it. They cheer me up and encourage me on my best and worst days.

My pot of gold is my two little ones, Katherine(3) and Alexander(20months). Having had discovered after having my daughter that I had genetic blood conditions that could have caused her to not be born at all I counted myself lucky everyday that she was here. Then we she was 18months old and we found out we were having another baby we were both scared. Every month we had a specialist appointment and though I went there for blood reasons the doctor always gave me bad news about the growth of the new baby. I even went into labor early and didn’t know it and he was born 3 hours later via c-section. Now that they are running around, fighting, and yelling their lungs out I may have the times that I feel frustrated but all it takes is one random smile or a “Mommy I love you” that’s unprovoked and it makes my heart melt and my day seems better instantly.

My pot of gold is my wonderful husband. Last night I was stressing about my baby shower because things just weren’t coming together, and he just took the phone and made some calls for me. Then it all got smoothed over. He is such a sweetheart and does his best to keep me happy, especially when I get frustrated and stressed.

My Pot of Gold has to be my husband. He has been laid off 3 times in the past 4 years and is currently on workers compensation. Instead of feeling sorry for himself, he has tried to find ways to help out around the house (Take the burden off of me). He cleans, cooks, does laundry, does yard work, grocery shops (Well just to get stuff we don’t have coupons for. I haven’t quiet gotten him to properly use coupons..but I will get there). You name it, he does it!. It is a wonderful feeling after a long day at work to come home and the kids homework is completed, my house smells wonderful and dinner is on the table. He is a truly wonderful husband.

My pot of gold definitely has to be my husband and two daughters. We moved all the way across the country for my husband’s job, but that meant being far far away from our families. We really really miss our families, but are grateful we have each other.

My mini pot of gold is that my infant daught is starting to sleep through the night.

My pot of gold has been very empty since I lost my job six months ago. I went to church, something that I rarely did in the past, however, they were talking about religion being about charity, giving and helping others. I went home and gathered up what I could find to donate. Giving made me feel good for days, that is my “pot of gold” right now.

After hearing and reading and seeing pictures of all the destruction happening in Japan right now, it makes me so grateful I have my family here with me, food to eat, and a place to call home and that we are all safe. I can’t even imagine the terror thoes people are feeling, their homes, and maybe even families are gone. It make everything else that goes wrong in our lives so small. Life can change so quickly and we take too many things for granted, Hopefully we can reach out and help others more and remember thae small and simple blessings in our daily lives, and pray to our Heavenly Father to be with thoes dear people in Japan who need so much comfort and help at this time.

My pot of is gold is my family. They can always make me smile…even when I’m feeling grumpy. Just the other morning, my 6-year old son said to me, “Mom, you smell good.” I looked at him and asked, “Reall?” And, he replied, “You smell like ‘Mom,’ so you always smell good.” What a sweetheart! He made my week! :)
