Poolside.

Because we bought a baby pool for this ridiculous August heat,

and because we can put bucketfuls of water in it,

We are rich.

We layered the ground underneath it with towels so rocks wouldn’t puncture a hole in it. 

All those towels make us rich too.

Simon helped us and said “you have all these towels you put on the ground and I don’t even have one?”

Of course he walked out with a towel, while we swallowed a dose of humility.

A baby pool and the water to fill it – clean water to fill it would be even more dollar signs – means you are rich.

Let’s not stop zooming our perspective out because it’s hard to swallow. Spirit, keep opening our eyes.
