we ARE rich

because she reads so much it makes sense that she is my most dreamy child. the one with so many creative little thoughts and ideas. the other night as i  set clean laundry on her bed, i noticed some writing on her desk. the words, written in large letters caught my eye. at first glance i thought she’d copied it from somewhere, but after reading it all, i could see the innocence of childhood written between the lines. however,  i couldn’t help but be touched, because this is what she wrote………..

“we are rich, not in the way you measure wealth by worldly possessions, but in a way only those who stop to enjoy the simple things of life can understand. we are rich by our strength, our family, our souls and most of all our God. we stop to enjoy the pleasures of LIFE that not always come with pomp and possessions, but merely the simple, quiet, wonderous things of life.” ………..almost 10. april 2009.
