One day last week, J had taken the day off so that we could both take Spiderman to a doctor's appointment. We picked up the kids from school later in the afternoon, and we were all chatting while driving down the road.
At one point Spiderman said, "I wonder who the richest person in the world is right now."
And without hesitation, I replied, "Me."
He laughed like I was silly, and I said...
"Did you know that you can be rich in other ways besides having lots of money?
I have things that are so much more important than money. I have you kids, your daddy, and we have a nice home. We have all of the things we need. And most of all, we have lots and lots of love. We are very rich!
There are people out there who have lots of money, but they may not have a family and they may not have love. And money can't buy them those things. And they may not be happy.
But we are happy, because we are rich in the things that matter the most."
I asked Spiderman, "What do you have that makes you feel rich?" and he said "my family....and my friends....and you know what? I don't really like money that much anyway."
I hope you're having a Wonderful Weekend!
