Money has nothing to do with happiness. I'll admit not having to stress about bills would be so awesome, but honestly I've never had to not worry about it. We were poor when I was growing up, and we're getting by now, but it's never been easy. I guess it's just my personality, but I've always been the one to say "it's ok, we'll be ok, we have each other and that's what matters." I got lucky with very grounded children who don't throw a fit when they don't get everything they want and are just as happy to go to the park and play and take a walk with mom and dad as they are to go to Dollywood for the day. I grew up this way, I'm working to change it with school and working as much as I can to get ahead, but I'm happy. I wish some of the people around me would realise that hard work and being greatful for what you have is the key to happiness, not getting as much out of everyone as you can since they're not willing to work. Ok vent over.
