I Am Your Policy
– Author Unknown

“You and I have purposes in this world which, when broken down, are quite similar.

It is your job to provide food, clothing, shelter, schooling, medicine and sundry things for your loved ones. You do this while I lie packed away. I must have faith and trust in you. Out of your earnings will come the cost of my upkeep. At times I may appear to be somewhat worthless to you – but some day (and who knows when) you and I will change places.

When you are laid to rest, I will come alive and do your job. I will provide the food, clothing, shelter, schooling, medicine, and other things your family will continue to need – just as you are doing now. When your work is done, mine will begin. Through me your hands will carry on.

Should you live to reach the golden retirement age, I will come to life and help provide the necessary money to keep doing your work. Whenever you feel the price you are paying for my upkeep is a burden, remember that I will do more for you and your family than you can ever do for me.

If you do your part, I guarantee to do mine.
