    I too, am rich in ways beyond measure. This morning I have a quiet space and I have so much enjoyed reading the responses and reflections from the community. Your words are riches as I absorb their wisdom. Thank you ❤️️

    In love. Though most of the wells to my heart have dried up. But if I can fix those wells, I will be rich beyond imagination.

    HOW am I not rich? I am gifted the ability to create bridges of compassion to better understand and care for others and even myself out of my own ditches of despair. It may take time, and some grueling work, but there has never been a situation (and I have had some doozies) that has not eventually transformed into a gift, a tool, a life lesson, a deep understanding. I AM RICH….

    How am I rich?
    Let me count the ways . . .

    I am rich in so much more than money . . .
    rich in love,
    in freedoms,
    in shelter & health,
    in friends,
    in beauty . . .
    in experience,
    in talent & skills,
    in lessons,
    in things to learn,
    in Nature and a love of the Earth.

    After many years, I live in a region of the country where I can tolerate the weather. For someone who struggled with long cold grey snowy winters, the change in quality of life is everything.

    I am so so blessed in a multitude of ways, my good health, my relationship & quiet time with Source, a few family members who love me & I love them. I am blessed with a roof over my head, food in the cupboard, clean water, $$ in the bank. I live in a beautiful neighborhood, surrounded by glorious Redwoods, lots of flowers, trees, birds. Walking in my neighborhood is an absolute delight, a joy. I feel so “rich” when I take a walk here. I am very very blessed, hence I have “riches” for days. 🙂🙏❤️

    I have an abundance of love, friends, and a stable income in retirement. I have a loving husband, great family, and perhaps most importantly, my mostly good health. I am rich indeed!

    In so many ways; for the moment I feel rich of being blessed with the company of my dear Godchild and the emotional connection we share naturally. Dear friends and cooperative and kind colleagues are enriching my life; material abundance is available of whatsoever would be essential: food, a beautiful place to live, warm clothes in winter, healthy food and clean water available, abundance wherever I see. I am full of gratitude for the richness in so many ways.

    YUP!!

    I’m a thousandaire! I have love, I have a home, I have healthy food, I have electricity, water, and indoor plumbing, and health care. I have an education and books, I’m in a democratic nation where I have a voice and equality (at least in principle), I have healthy nature around me and a wonderful, caring, community. No doubt about it, I’m rich! It is my deepest prayer that all on earth may have this as well.

    Good Morning…of the many riches in my life, today I am especially grateful for the rising sun reflecting in my rearview mirror as I drove to work, the colour of the fall leaves, the thinning forest foilage revealing depths that haven’t been seen since winter, and another spectacular Fall day ahead of me.

    Oh, dear Lord, I am not just rich, I am wealthy. I have a home, a decent car, food on the table, and sufficient resources to live reasonably comfortably with enough left over to share with those less fortunate than I. I have my Church, family, and many, many friends that care about and for me. I have reasonably good health and much happiness. And I have much love in my life, something no amount of money can buy. I am truly wealthy…

    Rich in a wealth of interesting and unusual life experiences.
    Being exposed to an abundance of cultures: having lived on 3 continents by the time I was 12. And continuing to work with children from a wealth of cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
    Being healthy and active for which I am grateful..
    Living in the city with so many opportunities to enjoy art, music, performance s, while also being able to access the beauty of tbe natural world: the White Mountains, the ocean.
    Just some of my riches. And so many more…

    While it is not an embarrassment of riches I have not gone hungry, ever, nor been without a roof over my head, or people that cared about me relatively available if needed. I am poor enough to have a sense of going without just enough to make it possible for me to therefore appreciate what I do have and to alleviate any anxiety that lack of material wealth has a connection to abundance of what really matters: the ability to be true to oneself, free of internal contradictions and the crippling fear that accompanies it that someone will find out, some rather too many good and perhaps lost causes for which to die on a hill for. And my health.

    I am wealthy in the simplicity of my life. I have time to listen to whoever needs my attention, time to ponder, and the quietude to be still and hear God. I know who I am in Christ. There is nothing more I need. What glory! 🕊

    “I am rich in daughters,” is a term I have used since our three daughters were born during the 1970’s. Today, that richness continues, as my entire family, three daughters, three sons-in-law, and seven grandchildren, all lives locally and continue to enrich my life and my wife’s life every day.

      This is so beautiful, Kevin. I am one of 4 daughters and I think my father would say the same as you 😊 I, in turn, am rich in fathers. I may have just one but he has been a huge gift and an unending source of richness.

      1. Kevin

        Thanks for your kind words here, Sandra. And how wonderful and precious that you have the relationship with your dad that you do. I’ve had some of our daughters adult friends approach me and say that they wished that they could say the same thing about their fathers, but cannot, and could not, for reasons too painful to discuss. With reality as a backdrop, how lucky are we to be so blessed, for family, and love to flow so freely within?

        1. Sandra

          Yes, absolutely, Kevin. I remember well when I first started to realise that not all families were like mine. It is a rare and precious thing and I value it daily 😊
