The Wealth of Home

You don't have to be wealthy to be rich. A certain mindset, particularly one of gratitude helps you realise just how rich you are. I love this poem by Sarah Hale 1788 to 1879

Sarah Hale
We need not power or splendour,
Wide hall or lofty dome;
The good, the true, the tender,
These form the wealth of home.
