No, No, I don't mean monetary, I mean wealth as in:
My loving husband, Claude. He is the most caring and compassionate person I know. Last night while I was working on my Active Rain blog -- setting up my outside blog, commenting on blog posts, learning new techniques, installing new links, or writing posts, he was in the kitchen preparing our dinner. Having Claude in my life, gives me a wealth of happiness.
My family - Both my parents are deceased. My brother, Donald, recently passed away leaving a whole in my heart. I feel very blessed to still have 9 siblings; 6 sisters and three brothers. The youngest is 57 years of age, and the oldest being 75. When my sisters and brothers visit, we always reminisce about our parents and our childhood. Growing up, I always wondered what it would be like to be the only child. I suspect that we all wanted to be an only child at one time or another. But, I was truly blessed to have a big wonderful family...AH... to be so wealthy.
Pictured here is my Mother 38, and Dad was 41, with 9 children; the 2 youngest, Linda and Avis, were not born yet. Mother had lost one child. I am sitting on my Dad's lap.
My health - If you don't have good health, what good is money? Eat healthy, exercise regularly, keep your mind active (i.e., post and comment on Active Rain) and you will have a wealth of good health. I am so thankful for my good health.
My friends - Since my husband and I moved to Lewisburg, WV, in 2007, I've met so many wonderful people that turned out to become good friends. Since my retirement, many of our friends from Northern Virginia have visited us; and love this quaint historical town. As a new agent in this town, the real estate agents I work with are so supportive and helpful. It has been said, if you can count the number of your friends on your hands, you are indeed wealthy. So, again I say, "I am wealthy"!
My faithful companion, Zeke - a chocolate lab, has become a part of my extended family. He is so adorable with the best personality. In fact, better than some humans I know. Zeke gives unconditional love. No matter how I feel when I get up in the morning or come home from work, he is always there to greet me with all the "hugs and kisses"....in dog language that is "licking and jumping".
I am so wealthy to have Zeke!
But, above all, MY FAITH in God. My parents had great faith, and growing up, had instilled in us about the love of God, and about having faith. Without my faith I could not get through every day of life, especially those days of suffering and stress, and those times of complexity and challenge. I truly am wealthy because God lives within me!
My husband, family, health, friends, faith in God and my faithful companion, Zeke (who is the chocolate icing of my life) is all the wealth a person needs to have a full and complete life.
I AM INDEED A WEALTHY PERSON!
