I consider myself wealthy, even though finances are tight. We live in a one bedroom apartment, and we have one vehicle, but I consider myself wealthy because there are things that money cannot buy. Money cannot buy you the days you spend with your children. Looking into their little faces that smile and laugh. I consider myself wealthy when I get invited to go to the beach with my friend and our kids. We spend the day there in the hot sun, eating peanut butter sandwiches we made ourselves and watching them splash in the water, knowing that if we worked full time we would miss these days and they are better to us than any vacation to any spectacular destination. I am wealthy when I go on long walks with my kids enjoying the crisp air and taking as many photographs as I can fit into the running around. I breathe in the mountain air and look out at the Rockies from where I’m standing. I’m wealthy just looking at them. I’ve had a lot of people look down on us, because financially we have not much. But, what I have with my family, I wouldn’t trade for money, because its just not worth it.
