Most of our friends make more money than we do because we have chosen to live simply.
We do not have a “poor me” attitude but suggest alternatives positively. Our friends understand and enjoy our company whether we have money or not. So we suggest going out for breakfast or lunch or a good cappuccino and dessert rather than an expensive dinner. We invite them over for wiener roasts or pot luck picnics. Sometimes friends will treat us to a meal in a fancy restaurant and we reciprocate with a home-grown, home – cooked meal or high tea in our garden.
