I really need for you to know that we are rich...but you also need to know that I am NOT talking about money here. It seems that my beautiful 16 year old granddaughter thinks we are rich. I don't know what kind of rich she thinks we are...I will need to ask her soon.
I was visiting with my daughter the other evening. She was in Portland and I was in Las Vegas. My husband and I were having dinner at the Culinary Dropout located in the Hard Rock Hotel. It was late and we were eating light...not expensive. We were seated outdoors and the temperature was very near 80 degrees. As I talked with my daughter she laughed because it was, as always, raining in Portland. I admit that I did rub our good fortune in a little bit...she does lots of fun stuff too so she can take it.
Then she told me that my granddaughter wanted to know how Grandma and Grandpa got to be so rich? I have asked myself that question many times. How did we get to be so lucky?
My daughter's thought that it was our enthusiasm for little things make what we have or do appear to be valuable. I had to agree because, if being an over-the-top-Pollyanna makes one rich, I am a very wealthy woman.
We are rich in so many ways. We have been able to do things that we never even dreamed possible during our retirement. We have 12 grandchildren that bring us great joy. They are beautiful, talented and best of all, nurtured and cared for by wonderful parents.
