Can a Weak Economy Create a Stronger Family

 

My friend JL was kind enough to make this available for a re-blog. Enjoy!

 

Bingo

 

 I can remember that when I was younger that we didn't have a ton of money to throw around. I couldn't tell you if there was a recession, a depression, or if we were just poor. I was a child and in the end, what's the difference to a kid? The only thing I really knew was that things were the way they were.

 We never went out to eat, and we didn't have a lot of the cool, new toy and games that some the other kids did. But the truth of the matter is that you never really learn to miss what you never really had, so what was the big deal? I can remember that we spent a lot of time in the evenings playing bingo and other board games. My Grandmother or one of the other adults if she was sitting out, would call the numbers and all the Grandchildren would rush over there cards dying for the opportunity to toss down a plastic chip and scream for victory.

Poker Night

 Now that the world as we know may have taken a turn for the worse financially, many people are making serious sacrifices in the recreational activities. Forgoing the decision to run out on expensive excursions to remain within the confines of home save some green. So, as a result of these decisions to remain at home, I can't help but wonder if it will cause families to become closer.

 When we didn't have very much money and we spent all our nights playing Bingo or Monopoly and enjoying the occasional chocolate pudding, we were extremely close as a family. So, I wonder if the same will happen for families whose extracurricular habits have always caused them to remain apart more often than together. Can a weak economy create a stronger family in certain cases?
