Tine Bank

Rich or poor we all get the same days. Or, no matter how big the bank account, time is the same.

I was working at our plant in San Francisco.  Someone came in and was suggesting that I was getting rich.  I demurred and said that no, I wasn’t as rich as he was.  We were about to have a verbal throw down on who was “poorer” when I realized that this was silly and suggested that “rich or poor, we all get the same days.”  We both nervously smiled and he left.  

I am rich, but not in the pocketbook, I’m rich in coming to value the days and hours of life.   I’m rich in becoming aware that the relationships I populate my life with are the coin of wealth.  I’m rich in celebrating my blessings.
