I recently read some interesting quotes on Poverty I'd like to share at this time of the year.
"Having been poor is no shame, but being ashamed of it is"
"The Greatest Man in History was the poorest"
....................Ralph Waldo Emmerson
Isn't this just the truth. I don't know about you but I do remember growing up thinking we just had everything we could ever want or need, but in looking back those times were truly meager. I think it was that our parents taught us to be thankful for what we had. Times are sooooooooo different today. In every aspect things have changed, times have changed, people have also changed. I'm really grateful for what I have today and I try not to take it for granted, but I am also so grateful for having grown up in the fifties and for the lessons I've learned as a result of.
