That's a picture of my work history. I have struggled to survive from paycheck to paycheck. I have worked two jobs to try to make ends meet. Today I have the great privilege to have a day off with my family.

We are not rich but we have what we need, with enough extras that we really are rich, in our own way. I often think of others who are not. In the words of a James Taylor song,

"So may I work the mills just as long as I am able and never meet the man whose name is on the label."

What does it take to just get by in Columbia, Maryland? Take a look.
