Affluence alone does not character build
Money alone will not fill that void

    With the right person, money is an invaluable tool capable of being used to fill many voids. The giver in giving builds their Character in the process of letting it go.

    Carly; First I thank you for your comment because these comments mean so much to me. I jotted those line down after hearing a news article relating to how those with money sway our justice system in their favor no matter what the crime. I can point to those in the entertainment and sports industries as examples.

    How very true this is Donald, I have known a lot of rich people, but not too many happy ones. Thanks for the read, my friend....peter

    I think some money can be trash talk. May all the money that crosses your palm, sing a sweet melody. May you use it to bless your family and others who are less fortunate. Merry Christmas to you.

    Thank you so much for your kind comment on my Mothers are poem. I wrote that for PD after her mom passed in June. Take care, Colleen

    The purpose of money is to buy freedom and with effort one can learn that this can be an inverse relationship. We trade life energy for money and can't get life energy back, so it's best to use it wisely and carefully. Good, mind-filling write.

    So not only can money not buy you happiness, but you suggest it cannot buy you character either. Love it.
