For poorer read richer.

For richer or poorer. Words so often uttered without a thought then thrown into the air to be blown away on the breeze.


Riches so often conceal a true poverty. When all one desires is an arm’s length away, everything is taken for granted. Never the thrill of the chase, or the satisfaction of achievement.


Yet poverty can bring with it a richness all of its own. To make ends meet when all seems hopeless can lift the soul. A modest treat when treats are scarce is worth far more than the small amount it cost.


Everyone no matter how poor can enjoy riches that transcend material possessions and wealth.


For poorer, read richer.

  6. Yes! When little, I never knew we were poor. We didn't want with hand-me-down clothes from the rummage sale and second hand toys (and five siblings) to play with.
