The word ‘spoil’ connotes negativity. Uh-uh!- not for me. I’ve never been enticed, nor impressed by material wealth. Where true riches lie are in those intangible moments and quality relationships that warm you up from the inside – you just can’t buy that.

It’s not diamonds and pearls
neither will it be riches untold
nor status or power
it’s kind words
from a warm heart
it’s sharing life‘s pains and victories
it’s the language of the held hand
it’s gentle laughter
..these are what spoil me
