My heart is just filled with gratefulness and love this morning. Like up to the top. I even feel a little misty eyed. Thinking about how rich and wealthy we already are if we would take the time to stop and smell the roses. Totally immerse ourselves in the moment of a conversation with a friend without looking at our phones or immerse ourselves totally in the pleasure of a cup of tea or glass of wine. If we would look into the eyes of our family when we see them and hug them each time with all of our might. If we would reminisce about the fun times of childhood we would laugh and feel good about all of those good memories…rich irreplaceable moments with friends and cousins. Wealthy in our small homes and apartments surrounded by objects we adore and that are priceless and meaningful to us even if we got them from a dollar store or if it were passed down to us or given to us by a friend. Wealthy in the events of accomplishments big and small, public and private. Wealthy in nature. Yes, money cometh. Yes, wealth and riches is in your house. But just know, we are rich and wealthy in the now. -Nicole Jackson

Really beautiful. Many times we forget how rich we are with the blessings of family and little things.
We do. So busy in life and just a moment of reflection we can see how blessed we already are.
I agree with this beautiful post! We’ve sold everything and downsized into an RV for travel–I thought I would miss all the little “things” attached to my memories. What I’ve learned is that the true riches are in our heart–in our experiences, the love of our family and friends, and ability to realize and be grateful for our many, many, many blessings. Your post is a lovely reminder. Dawn
