Me: I feel really happy right now. I just wanted to tell you that.
Six-year-old son: Why are you so happy?
Me: Well, we have a safe and beautiful home, reliable cars, enough to eat and all the love we can handle. I feel like the richest woman in the world.
Son: Love is what makes you feel rich.
Me: So true.
Son: I mean, we may not be rich in money, but we’re really rich in love. That’s even better.
Me: Very wise, honey. And just so you know, compared to people in other countries around the world, we’re very very lucky.
Son: Man, we are so rich. I love you, Mom.
Me: I love you, too.
