I'm wealthy in that I live in a GREAT nation, in an environment that I'm blessed to have chosen for myself in a 'gated community' with an 18 hole private golf course, 55 miles of paved roads, 115 acre stocked private lake, where motor boats and jet skies are prohibited, on the side of Sharptop Mountain in North Georgia.

The Town of Jasper, Ga is only about 9 miles away, Atlanta is about 1 hour and 20 minutes away.

I have a wife who loves me, and has provided me with 2 (with one on the way) grand children, a loving daughter-in-law, and son-in-law. They now live in Texas again, we hope to be able to visit and watch my eldest grandson graduate from High School this June.

My parents (both in their 80's) are living and have enough money to take care of their modest needs.

My wife's father is still living and working @ 73 years of age still doing concrete commercial and residential construction (he is one tough but loving old Mexican/American) his wife (my wife's mother) died several years ago from ALS - Lou Gehrig's disease.

My two younger brothers are living and working.

I have food on my table, a roof over my head, my utilities are current.

Most of my bills are current, in spite of being laid off due to reduction in force reductions two days before Thanksgiving, with very few job offers out there for skilled electricians.

I have a reasonably sound mind Shocked

I have a God who loves me, no matter WHAT I do.

I have pipes and tobacco, and friends to enjoy them with.

I am drawing unemployment, but I'm a VERY WEALTHY MAN!

Thank you for asking Exclamation

I would have to go along the same lines as what Kilted1 says. I'm fortunate that I'm still working but the lay off cloud is looming in the airline industry all the time. Money wise I'm living pay check to pay check right now. Health wise it couldn't be better right now after the gastric bypass surgery. I have a great family and a roof over my head. I pray that God is looking after me, which he has these many years. I have a roof over my head, food on the table and my pipes and tobacco which is better than some people nowadays so I have nothing to complain about. I am grateful to God for everything he has given me.

The above pretty much sums it up. I'm a blessed man for sure and I honestly can say that where the rubber meets the road there is not much else that I could ask for. I know that I will eat tonight and I will have a warm place to lay my head and my family is healthy. Everything else is just extra!

IMO most Americans have a fairly "rich" life of many sorts.

I have "enough" so I'm set & sleep well at night.

Monetarily (sp?) I'm not very well off. On the other hand, I have a secure job which I still enjoy. I have enough to pay my bills, and keep food on the table. I'm healthy and have a beautiful wife who treats me better than I deserve. I can't think of anything I need that I don't have and very few things that I want. I'd say I'm blessed of the Lord. What more could one ask?

These are great responses. I guess we all have so much to be thankful for, no matter what our circumstances. Here in Africa, where security is a real issue, we still have it OK. As for me, I take life one day at a time. This works for me.

My wife, children, and grandchildren are all healthy and doing quite well, as am I. I sometimes fall asleep in my recliner in the evening, no real worries. Life is good!
