"Money can't buy you health or happiness"

http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_upshot/20101104/od_yblog_upshot/nicest-canadian-couple-in-world-doles-out-lottery-winnings

This sweet couple in Canada gave away almost all of the $11 million that they won in the lottery.

I would like to come to a point in my life where I know that all that would matter to me are the people I love, and anything with monetary value would simply be extraneous. *sigh*

I read that article too and they kept 2% which is the equiv. of $220,000. Nice bundle, sufficient for living in the countryside with no real material desires except necessities.

Certainly a noble vision of grandeur for this world to only value those of whom they love, but that wouldn't make the world turn. Money does.

Material, experiences, luxury, less problems & less stress, dire situations/circumstances, and necessity versus accessory(?) are incubated in us. It's what makes the world turn (out of money) for better or for worse though in most cases worse. Worse? Yes, as we are destroying the planet since we've inhabited it.

Sounds like something my hubby and I would do. We're already doing things like that even though we don't have a lot of money ourselves.
