Luxury Living

I'm in North Carolina for my mom's 60th (shhh!) birthday party and Mother's Day extravaganza. Today, we went to the Biltmore House. Honestly, it CAN be a little bit difficult to be surrounded by such luxury when I have experienced first-hand the poverty that exists in the world. The harder thing? Paying $2.00 for a small cup of soda, or seeing people shell out $7.00 for a solo cup of wine. Oh, what I could do with that money in Mexico, or what so many people could do with that in other parts of the world. So, I have to suck it up when I am here in the good ole' USA and just remember that I'm not in Mexico. (Which, by the way, also goes the other way when I go to the gas station and see $3.60 for a gallon of gas! WOW!)
