As anyone of sense knows, money is a blessing and I dearly wish I had more--a lot more. I should have flowers in the classroom, and my house, all the year round, buy a hundred or so books, which have been on my list for years, and spend every school holiday travelling abroad--just for a start.
My mother used to think that the adage "Money doesn't buy happiness" was ludicrous. I pretty much agree. Of course, once you have "enough," then getting more money probably doesn't impact happiness so much. But to be able to buy the things one needs or to make repairs or pay monthly bills, without guilt or worry, seems to me just a basic building block in the foundation for happiness.
And to have enough money for a few reasonable wants, why to many that would be sheer heaven.
Because even if we haven't yet, we'll all have trials, even tribulations. We all experience illness, even severe illness; accidents; crimes; loss; and the deaths of our loved ones. But I can guarantee that folks wouldn't want to be nearly penniless on top of those things if they didn't have to be.
Just a few thoughts, and I hope this post doesn't offend anyone with or without money!
Either way: "Count your blessings, name them one by one",
