I Am Rich
I am rich.
No, I’m not bragging about material wealth. In that sense, I am not rich by any stretch of the imagination. Nope, I’m rich because of the beautiful relationships in my life.
As you might have seen on Friday’s post, I turned 40 this past weekend. And I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect celebration.
It started when Sara actually came to Canada as a surprise to me worked out between her and my husband. Many miles separate us so it was a real treat to spend time together outside of a writer’s conference. That was the first of several surprises my husband had up his sleeve!
The next day was beautiful. My little family spent a wonderful afternoon with relatives and close friends. At one point, my husband and I looked around the room and just sensed the love that people not only showed to us, but to one another. At that moment I felt like the richest person in the world. It’s such an honour to know so many amazing people who genuinely care about each other.
It wasn’t possible for everyone we love to join us, but it was wonderful to share the day with some. I stumbled across the quote below and I thought it captured my feelings well….
Take time today to appreciate the people in your life.
