Blessed to the moon and back!

As a friend with a beautiful new palatial home displayed a new luxury vehicle I found myself  celebrating her blessings wholeheartedly. Wait. Shouldn’t I be singing a whiny version of Janis Joplin’s “Mercedes Benz?” I’m as shocked as anyone that I wasn’t!

I’ve had friends out of my league financially my entire life. I been entertained in mansions, listened to stories of trips on family yachts. As I write, I remember I’ve rubbed elbows with a millennial who, despite the fact his father’s personal net worth is estimated in the mega millions, is one of the unbelievable nicest and most unassuming folks I know. If I were as blessed as these wouldn’t I want others to rejoice with me?
