It is not very often that I feel affluent. I look at our house and see the TV and sink that needs to be replaced. I see the re-tiling that needs to be done in the bathroom and feel the cold air in the winter that comes in through a balcony door that doesn’t quite shut properly. I think of how nice it would be to straighten my teeth or highlight my hair or take a trip to Peru.. or… or …. or
But if I look around, we have the TV and the satellite dish, our internet, our cupboards full of food, electricity for A/C, washer and dryer, clothes on our back, roof over our head and nice cars in the parking lot. If having everything you need and some of what you want is affluent, then we are affluent. So why aren’t I feeling it as I pay the bills?
