If I was rich and powerful.

If I were rich and powerful, and given the choice to leave this place, I would not.  While I make no excuses that being rich and powerful are somehow beyond my control, and unachievable, I would not leave.  Would I keep the blankets hanging in the doorway to block the cold air, or the sleeping bag adorning the laundry room entry fighting the chill?  No.. I would hire someone to come in, and insulate this house, re-do the entry way and laundry thus keeping the cold out of the living areas.  

I would probably also employ them to fix the basement entrance, and the front porch, build shelving, shovel driveways, and mow the lawn.  Or maybe I would not.  Maybe I would learn from this person all that I need to know, so I could build my own shelves, fix our own porch, or flop stairs around to a basement entrance. Because really….Its not the money, or the power that are the prize.. Its becoming a person of such value that you are worth any amount of money, becoming a person of such character that power isn’t what defines you.  Becoming who you were born to be.  

How do we discover who we were born to become?

    Oh if we only knew…I doubt I was meant to clean people houses but I make the best of it and I am grateful for the friendships (and money) I have made. I too have blankets on my windows and doors and an unfinished basement but fixing either of them has just never been a priority. Maybe when I am a grown up I will do it;)
