the truest treasures

by Betsy

Holding treasures

There are many things that I take seriously and spend much energy on – my job, bills, an organized house, folded laundry, my kitchen pantry contents.  How silly I have been, wasting my time on those things.

Instead, I must take seriously the true treasures – laughter shared with my daughters, an embrace from my husband, a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a clear blue sky, thoughtful gestures, tiny baby toes, kind words. In the end?  Nothing matters as much as these things.  Nothing.

May I begin this new year holding close the beautiful truth, joy and love.
