First of all, I want to say thanks to both Sofia and Garf for their kind thought regarding my father in Canada. Your concern is much appreciated, thank you both for you comments. Great quote by the way Garf.
Sofia, I know from what you wrote earlier in this thread that Steve Jobs is one of you heroes.So when I came across this quotation of his, I immediately thought of you.
" Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night and saying we have done something wonderful, that's what matters to me".
Speaking for myself, money has never been a major driving force in my life, as long as I have enough to get by that all that matters. I often remember that saying, "You can be the richest man in the world but it cant buy you happiness and love". I will never be a rich man if you look at things money wise, but with my family and friends around me and with the love they give, I feel like the richest man of all. On Boxing Day, my youngest grandson who is only seven when he found out he was just about to be taken home, went up to his parents, dropped down on his knees, put his two little hand together just like he was praying and said to his parents, "Oh do we have to go home? I want to stay here, please let me stay". It's little things like that that make me feel so happy and it's something I will never forget and will treasure for the rest of my life. It's wonderful things like that that make me feel like the richest man on earth.
Have a great day everyone and I wish you all little moments like that, Brian
