Wealth


May your charity increase as much as your wealth. ~Eskimo Saying

The word verify is *pktukkil*

Must mean something. :)

I am afraid that wealth is not something I am well versed in. Charity, I give what I can.

May I ad to that the idea that my 'wealth' has increased according to how charitable I am! Of course that shouldn't be a motive, but it's a nice perk.

It's nice to see this topic come up. There's a lotto jackpot here (and other places)that is over 355 million dollars. I can't even fathom how much money that is, but what I do know is that it's way too much for one person. I envision myself winning it and the greatest part of that fantasy is how many people (and animals!) I would help with all of that money. Some people would say they'd quit their jobs, buy houses and cars and jewelry and stuff. But it's just stuff! I'm not being self righteous by saying I don't want "stuff"...I'd love a house and lots of land for all of the animals I'd rescue. There are so many causes and charities I'd give to, and yes, I'd enjoy some luxuries I can't enjoy at this time.(Like not worrying if I'll make rent, etc.) But honestly, what would excite me the most is knowing the good I could do with that money and being all the richer for it. For me, I think my charities will always increase as much as my wealth. Thanks for a place to come and share :)

lolo- I know about the lottery, and was encouraged to play. Of course, I forgot to get a ticket (shows how interested I am). And like others, I would like 'stuff', but more importantly, as you pointed out - I would spread the wealth and bring to those more needy. I would also travel, and get out of my little shell and learn from others. Btw, my mom is a fan of animals and had to put her Springer Spaniel to sleep last year (old age) and she told me the other day she is looking at another Springer puppy! I'm delighted she will have another baby. Btw, here is a link to a friend's blog who has rescued animals from local parks. This blog is dedicated to those animals.
