10 Things that Money Can't Buy

I thought this would be a fun list to do so I hope you like it.

10 Things that Money Can't buy

My Families' Happiness - No amount of money in the world can buy happiness.  It can buy pleasure with material things but it can't buy that happiness that comes deep in your heart.

Time with Past Loves - I'd give every cent I own to be able to talk to past loves and relatives.  Not to mention historical people.  Can you imagine what you could learn from Einstein?

Time Travel - I'd love to travel back in time to any mistake I made and fix it.  Wouldn't you?  Of course, if that changed the fact that my kids wouldn't be here.  I wouldn't want too.

Good Health - If there isn't a cure out there.  Nothing is going to save you.  Unless, of course, you are Magic Johnson with HIV.  (Disclaimer:  This is simply my opinion)

The Ability to Sing - I don't care how rich you are, if you can't sing you can't sing.  I've wanted to all my life.  Had more lessons then I can count.  Still can't sing.

The Ability to Paint - Same as above.  I want too.  Such beautiful things are out there for our eyes to view.  What a gift.

Peace - No matter how much money we have, we cannot buy peace.  If we could, don't you think that the government of the worlds would have created that money just for it?

Feed the Poor - No matter how many people give money.  We still can not feed the world.

Love - It doesn't matter how much money you have, it can not buy you love.  There are a lot of people that get married to wealthy people just to gain that power.  But don't end up loving them.

True Friends - I'm well aware that you can have friends because of your status in life.  I'm talking about those friends that will stick with you no matter what.  That will stick with you through the hard times and the good times.  A full weather friend can not be bought with money.

Will have to disagree with the feed the poor point. For a fraction of the cost of war, the US could have actually fed the world.

Also the peace thing, no, governments wouldn't make money for peace. Too many governments don't want peace. They want power and control.
