When asked the question “How rich are you?”, most people think about the money in their pockets, the designer of their clothes, the car they drive, or the size of their house.  In that respect I am poor, but I am not poor where it counts.

Ruth E. Renkel once said, “Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.” What would you rather leave behind for those you love? The memory of a parent of friend who worked constantly to have bigger nicer things? Or someone who spent time with them and made them laugh?

I’m not saying quit your job and let them do without, but I am saying spend your time wisely. None of us know when that precious time we have will be gone.
