Feeling Rich Friday

 Feeling rich is just a state of mind. You can be flat broke and still feel rich by appreciating the things you do have.  

Here's something that most of the time is free and makes me feel very rich.  Books!!  Lots and lots of books.  We're blessed to have a wonderful library in our town and I make full use of it every week. 

When I was a little girl my Mom convinced my brother and I that a walk to the library to get some books was about the most wonderful adventure, evah!  Every week (except for the dead of winter), we hiked the two miles to the library from our house and loaded up on books. 

Nothing has changed for me. A trip to the library is like a treasure hunt of unexpected delights.  When we are expecting really bad winter weather, most folks in town rush to the grocery store (weird!).  I rush to the library and stock up on extra books.

That's our library on the left...

 On the right are the books I'm reading right now.
  I usually read about 5 books at a time.


On the left are my back up books. 

I'd love to know what makes you feel rich?

Books are an illness...
They reproduce, they're dirty.

I love them.

I became a librarian because of it.

Bubble baths are pretty 'rich'.

Hi Adrienne!

I feel rich when my adult kids are doing well.
