I am a rich man... An open letter of thanks!
I am a rich man.
I do have some nice stuff... but that's no longer how I define my wealth.
I have been to places and experienced things... but that's no longer how I define my wealth.
I define my welloffness by the number of people in my life.
I define my welloffness by the quality of the relationships in my life.
Over the last few days I have been bombarded... literally bombarded... with concern for my wellbeing.
I have gallstones... I am in pain... but still I marvel... I throw my hands in the air and thank God for all the blessings He has bestowed on me.
He has given me the most wonderful wife in Olly.
He has given me the most wonderful set of parents and in-laws and family.
He has given me the most wonderful group of friends.
He has given us all the most wonderful means to communicate.
Face to face... Phone... SMS... Twitter... Facebook...
Take a look at my Twitter profile to see all the people I have responded to... Responded to the kindness shown in a demonstrable manner. 140 characters can say so much to someone who needs it.
If you are a friend on Facebook then take a look at my wall. If you are not a friend on Facebook, then what's stopping you?
Please accept my sincere thanks for all your support.
There is something here... with us and between us... I think its called community... and maybe its called love... and for me that is the greatest thing to have.
That is why I consider myself a rich man... because of you! ... and because of Him!
