Wow- you really think I deserved that comment ?

You read it the wrong way.

I have a woman coworker who is my age with one son and is a single parent. We started working at our employer the same year. She has stage 4 ovarian cancer.

After seeing what you went through, what she is going through and losing my father last year, I am evaluating how much I spend and do today and how much I save for tomorrow. One of the reasons I just spent two weeks in Hawaii was these events. At the same time, relatives of mine have lived into their 90s and 100s.

So my comment was directed at myself. I wish I had the perfect crystal ball to know how my life turns out so I could know how to adjust my savings and spending.
