I am not rich by most people’s standards. But by my own, I am. When my children ask me, “mommy, why can’t we be rich?” I tell them that we already are. We are healthy and happy, have an abundance of love, we have a comfortable home, great pets, friends and neighbors, and have more than what we need.  I have the ability to provide for my family, the kids are in good schools, and we live in a beautiful place.

Today I am grateful for all that life has given me. I know I am fortunate to have these things, and do not take them for granted.
