My mom is a stellar book keeper
She taught me how to reconcile my cheque book
To my bank statement
Reconcile this way, she would say
Instilling a monthly habit
I take pleasure in the balancing
Pouring over my transaction records
Persisting when things just don’t add up
I have saved these little booklets
A record of my financial history
An audit of my life.
The journey from scarcity to abundance.
Free verse, based on Cheque Books.
