Wealth

I was talking with a friend the other day about wealth. We tend to conjure up material objects when speaking of someone who is wealthy. And yet to be truly rich is to not to have, but to experience...value...love.

This Mother's Day was not about receiving gifts so I could have more to hold, but in enjoying what is already mine. It was a day to rejoice, celebrate, dance...knowing that true wealth is not found in the pocketbook, but simply and more fittingly, in the heart.

With such a lovely family, you are wealthy beyond compare. Money and fame and earthly possessions mean nothing, but our family and our children are everything! Jewels in your crown!

I remember my dad always saying that he felt "like the richest man on earth because he had his 3 daughters and wife". I always thought he sounded corny....I've since grown and realize what he was saying is true!

Nice post reminding us all of what is really valuable in our lifes!!
