This thought crossed my mind a few years ago and I like to come back to it from time to time:

If I have so much money that I don't worry how I will eat or put a roof over my head, I am very rich. If I so much money that I must worry about how to hold on to it, I am very poor.

At this point in my life, I am wealthy indeed.

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in!

When I pour coffee for a homeless young man without a job, I know that I have more than enough. When I hear the excitement of a couple who can hardly wait until next week when they move into an apartment and off the streets, I know that I have more than enough.

For what I have, may I be truly grateful: caring friends, resources to share, good health, nurturing spiritual community, a stable and healthy marriage, close family....

I found this on the New England Yearly Meeting website, and it struck a chord -

Do I recognize when I have enough?
