When we think of abundant riches and what we would do if they came knocking on our door, it is quite easy to get caught up in our reverie and imagine a life filled with opulence and untold excesses… We might linger on our fantasies for a while or if we are fortunate, gain a moment of lucidity; remembering that our abundant blessings are to be shared.
