We don't own our own home. We live in a ridiculously overpriced, small apartment. But we love it there, it's our home. For now. We don't have a fancy luxury vehicle, but we don't need one. Our car is great on gas, dependable, and can fit a car seat in the back. That's all we need. We don't have all of the latest technological gadgets & video games, but who needs that. It's better to get outside and play in the sunshine anyways. I'd rather mold play-doh with my daughter, or color a picture. Or read a good book :) Yes, we live paycheck to paycheck. But my life has always been this way. It doesn't bother me. We have food, a place to live, a car to drive, clothes to wear. My family is healthy. I know that we will be provided for. My husband makes an honest, honorable living serving our country. I'm not famous or known by a lot of people, but I have a few very close friends who I love dearly & can share anything with. I would rather have a few close ones than multitudes of distant ones. I love God and try to honor him with my life, and am teaching my daughter to do the same.
Sounds like a pretty successful life to me..
