Do You Realize How Rich Are You?
We all have money concerns from time to time. I won't use the phrase "money problems" because if you're able to pay all of the bills in your 3 or 4 bedroom house, and fill up your SUV you don't really have money problems, just money concerns. The problem is, many of us, this writer included, spend so much time being concerned with money that sometimes we don't realize how rich we already are.
We live in a "more" culture that never encourages gratitude, thankfulness, or contentment, and it is easy to fall into this state of mind. Whenever you find yourself thinking that your relationship or your life is not enough, think about this. There is someone in your life right now who would be glad to have your wife. There is someone in your life right now who would be glad to have your husband. Flaws, skeleton's and all. You may complain about being nagged or aggravated but there is a lonely woman raising children all alone who wishes that they had just a little help, and there is a man buying "home cooked" meals from Walmart who wishes that he had a nagging, cooking, caring, considerate wife, so that he wouldn't have to line up at the deli counter every night, and wake up alone every morning.
Riches are not always about money. But about the things that money cannot measure.
