First of all I would like to thank all of my readers who are supporting me during this difficult time, I really appreciate it.
Earlier this week we attended a scattering of ashes ceremony for a friend whose husband passed away a few months ago, and to be honest as it was a day of celebration and laughter it made me feel much better. The setting was beautiful, a nearby lake and the weather was just perfect.
I know I need to move forward now and I had a little help this week from a fellow blogger who has written a guest post for me until I get a few posts of my own written and scheduled.
Today I have a guest post for you from Maria who is an affiliate marketer, blogger and financial adviser.
