We hear all the time that material things are not important and for the most part I agree…although I do have my share. It’s nice to have some stuff, but after all it’s just stuff. Sometimes stuff carries a bit more weight to it and becomes a little personal. One thing I ‘treasure’ is a watch that was my dad’s, given to him by his mom just before he was heading overseas with the army to fight in World War II. It was something he ‘treasured’ since it was a gift from his mom. My dad was not one to wear rings or watches but I always remember him wearing this watch on special occasions, holidays, etc. Because it was his, it makes it all the more of a ‘treasure’ to me and I wear it all the time.
Wow – given by his mom, your grandmother, as he went to war. That’s quite a pedigree…love it!!!
