Wealth is measured not by your assets, but by your access to them.

From above, wealth pours down in buckets. Those who hold their hands over their heads and run for shelter remain poor—no matter how much they have.

Those who look up at the sky and smile are rich.

Wealth
It is an interesting comment about finding a 7 carat flawless diamond to make life a little easier and to have something to leave to her daughters than memories.

In my case I would rather have my daughters, both of blessed memory, with continuing memories than all the money in the world.

Material riches will not return life or health and what can be more important than that? I guess it is all a matter of perspective for the wealth that counts to me is life, friendships, community, Torah and G-d along with gratitude for living in a country that allows me to openly be Jewish.

Those are the biggies in no particular order of importance - if I were to list all the blessings in my life, there would not be enough characters to type them.
