Wine & Couture: Mint To Be

Mint To Be






I want to take a moment and talk about some personal things and a realization I have come to.  My father passed young (60), he didn't think this would happen and had not prepared for it.  My mother was left in a situation after his death and struggled for many years.  Lately my husband has had some health issues (collapsed lung, sprained shoulder).  Now seeing what my mother went through I have had a decent life insurance policy on my husband since we got married.  However, I am having to deal with other financial issues because of this health.  Making sure you have the right coverage for any type of occasion is so important.  I mean we have car insurance on the off chance something happens, Life and General insurance is a must as well!  Especially if you will leave bills behind should something happen.  Did you know the government only gives your family $255 if you die?  That's not enough to cover cremation ($500) let alone a funeral.  I'm getting slightly off track, sorry.  My point is after these incidents with my husband I have decided adding a supplemental policy, like Aflac, is a must for us!  Most people don't like to talk about the what if and end up not prepared.  I hope this will get the conversation going in your home and help you should the what if happen!

  1. I had a similar conversation recently with my husband, like last week. It's something that we should talk, you are right!

  2. Along with life insurance, especially if you have children, you should also look at having a will. They can be done online without an attorney if your estate is simple. And don't forget those medical power of attorney forms. 7 years ago I was signing them in the emergency room while being prepped for an emergency appendectomy. Don't be scared by the phrase "end of life." It truly does help your loved ones care for you.

    1. Very good point! A will is very important. Sadly my husband and I have not discussed this yet. It's on the list though.

  3. This is definitely a tough subject to talk about. I agree that it is always better to be prepared for the unexpected. It's so scary though, to think of losing a loved one.
