Every time that I read that the economy is circling the drain, I’m reminded that I have it pretty darned good. My kids go to a great school, and have plenty to eat. I have a good job, where I make more than anyone doing the same thing in the rest of the world, as do most of my neighbors, all of whom have nice houses, with running water.
I don’t mean, for a moment, to belittle the fate of folks who have lost their jobs, and who are currently without work. I am overawed, every day, at just how good I have it, and I know it could be gone in a moment. It’s very sobering.
