"Wealth consists not in having great possessions~~
but in having few wants."
Right now as I'm going through our home and purging things ...... it has occurred to me that we spend most of our younger years acquiring things and a good part of our older years trying to rid ourselves of all the "stuff" we have managed to accumulate.
I don't know if it is keeping up appearances or just the human desire to have "more". I had a very dear friend once say to me that "it is good for the soul NOT TO GET EVERYTHING one wants". At this stage I would more than agree with her...because as you collect and collect...there will come a day when you will have to give away and give away.
In fact, when you really think about it..
"LIFE" IS A LOT LIKE THIS. In your younger years you are vibrant and healthy and as you get older...more and more of your body betrays you....you cannot hold onto your looks without tremendous effort.....you health will begin to show signs of wear.....you just have to work much harder just "to maintain".
Mind you.....I'm really not complaining....I just stating it as I see it..warts and all. (O:(O
We are here this summer busily trying to get ready to put this house on the market and adjusting to what life will bring around the corner....I have to remind myself that this is a process and it will not be accomplished in one day.
In closing I want to remind us all that
"HE WHO HAS COWS~~HAS THE CARE OF COWS."
Oh how I wish someone would have told me that when I was much younger!! LOL LOL LOL
