So many ways to measure wealth:
family and friends,
income and assets,
health and good looks,
intelligence and skills,
education and achievements,
miles traveled and years remembered,
victories sweet and defeats redeemed,
wisdom won and apologies accepted,
trespasses forgiven and sins confessed,
prayers offered and thanksgivings said.
If there is nothing to watch on TV tonight,
we shall not complain.
