One of the fools not too long ago told of placing a penny on the first square of a checker board...the next day doubling that; then the next day doubling that; His young son wasn't very impressed the first few days but his eyes began to get very big when this continued and the money just grew and grew...Oh the magic of compounding or magically exponentially growing...Let's be happy with what we can manage and listen to these fools. Ann C. and Selma and their fellow writers on this kind of triumph of the money growth can be so helpful. Of course,as in any of the 12 steps, first the one needing help has to acknowledge it.
