…the behinder I get. I have been battling the same pile of paper clutter for a week now and it just seems to have taken on a life of its own. Today is the day I conquer it. Yes. Today. Hmmm….dentist appointment at 10:30…who knows what crisis du jour will come along. I will try my best. How is that?
A man’s wealth is measured by what he doesn’t need.
H. D. Thoreau
H. D. Thoreau
Isn’t that a great quote? The less you need the happier you are. Last night my son told me that, when he makes it big, he is going to buy me a mansion. I told him I don’t want a mansion. Well, a bigger house. Don’t need it. A ’68 Corvette? Well, I told him to make it a ’62 and that will do (I’ve dreamt of that car for years)!
Really, these are some things I don’t need:
a big house – just a place to stash more clutter
more food – enough to go around
a designer wardrobe (do you know that Sarah Jessica Parker is launching a new line of clothing next week? No piece is over $19.98! Including coats!)
If I were to stop right here I would be better off than probably 90% of the world. The rest is fluff.
scads of money – a bit more would help but being rich isn’t a goal of mine
more friends – once again, I am blessed, but I don’t turn away any new prospects!
chochkies – you know – those things that you collect and display? They only gather dust.
premium cable channels – can’t stand the smut
an IPod – I’m trying to get away from the noise!
that huge flat screen tv dh is salivating over – my imagination is just fine, tyvm
Well, you get the idea. My life is blessed with people who love me and I have a good support system which stretches around the world. My God never fails me. My family is healthy.
What I need more of is wisdom and discernment. Doesn’t everyone?
I pray that you are all well and hope to be around to visit very soon.
