I can see them all in her hand.
Her hand bejeweled with the most brilliant emerald ring I have ever seen.
I watch as she spreads out the many denominations and fans her face
before gently placing them in her wallet.
Maids, nannies, and a personal chef;
servants at her beckon call.
She never pushes a broom
nor does she tend to the daily needs of her baby.
She eats like a queen morning, noon, and night.
Designer clothes, luxury cars, and a beach-front lake house.
Never the same outfit; her closet is enormous.
The four-stall garage houses her Bentley, Maserati, Jaguar, and Porsche.
She can pick where she wants to spend her weekends, as well as what vehicle will be her transport.
I pine for this lifestyle as I binge-watch old episodes of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Oh, but it is late, and I must go to bed. The time before sleep overtakes me I thank God for my one-bedroom apartment. I cherish my mother’s thin gold wedding band that was given to me upon her death. I am thankful for being able to afford clothing from the Thrift Shop, and for living so close to a bus line so I can get to and from work every day. I am thankful I know how to cook and eat sensibly in my home which is not as unkempt as it was when my daughter was young, but I keep it clean. I am thankful for my lifestyle even if it is poor, yet quite humble.
