Thank you all so so much

I cant tell you how all your comments have touched me! I had a few tears I must admit. You are all really very lovely friends. True friends. Thank you so so much. You are all so right! I have got lots to be thankful for! I should feel sorry for my friend because she has to have things like that to cheer her up. I am not jealous of her situation, by no means. To be honest if I had enough money to buy two mercs I would not be spending it on them, no way. I'd have a huge house with a big garden and I would have loads of dogs and I would run my own boarding kennels that's what I would do.

This car thing is the last straw really. All through this year I've had to listen to her telling me about her holidays, her beautiful new kitchen with its imported granite that cost £20,000! I think its all beautiful - I love her kitchen and I love her house and I am genuinely pleased for her. She has a ring that cost £3,000!! £3,000 for a ring!! come on!!! That's a holiday for me and my kids, that's four more Oscars!! I don't need money and things to make me happy. I need my family, my friends, my dog and love. You are all right, I am rich.

It is true that money does not buy you happiness, it just allows you to be unhappy or more miserable in comfort. As I said before, you friend seems very insecure, it is insecure people that mostly brag about what they have because it makes them feel bigger in some way.

If I was younger, fitter and had a lot of money I would open an animal sanctuary, that was always my dream.

Well said, Laine, look around you and be glad of your fortunes! I agree with a nice cup of tea (or cappuccino)and chocs! I would also like to open an animal sanctuary, it has been my drem since I was a little girl. Now I've passed it on to my daughter. I hope she will succeed. Take care of yourself and your lovely family. Ciao. Antonella

Treasure what you have m'dear. We all have something that someone else yearns for. We all would like a little of what someone else has got.

I'm so proud of you and happy too, that you realize what true wealth means. Those who have you in your life will be the more blessed for it. Take care now.
