ready to go home, one of my student’s asked me; “Mrs. Bryant, are you
why do you ask?”
me and I quickly changed my response to, “Wait, NO I AM, I AM the richest
person in this school building, because you are my student!” She must have not
understood what I meant, because she quickly turned to her friend and told her,
“See, I told you, she is rich!” and in an instant they both looked at me
with such admiration, I was truly humbled!
truth! In her five year old thinking, she may not have understood my response,
but I know that one day she will grow up and remember those words and realize
that I was not talking about monetary richness, but life richness!
area, her words resounded in the inner most part of my soul and triggered so
many reasons on why I AM RICH!
about “richness” solely as monetary gains and dollars in our bank account, but
this is not necessarily true!
loaded, yet have an emptiness, a void that is destroying them little by
little! With no hope, no love, an empty life! They are poor in spirit, but rich
