Little Treasures

Little Treasures

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you see the word ‘treasures’? Is it what you’d find in a pirate’s chest, or perhaps precious gems and fancy jewelry, or something of monetary value?

Those aren’t the things that i think of when i think about treasures, what i think about is much more valuable to me than anything money could ever buy. What i think of is what’s in the red envelope that i have on my desk in front of me, which to anyone other than me they’d likely hold no value at all. In it are letters i’ve received from my sister and her husband, my treasures that no money could buy.

The next thing i think of is the program from their wedding.  Even as poor as my memory is at times, when i look at it i can still remember almost the entire wedding. Those memories are another of my little treasures, and the wedding program itself makes for an excellent fan if i get too hot. Mother made them all by hand with a wooden handle and sturdy paper so they could be used as fans, which i think is pure genius on her part.

I’m sure i’m not the only one who holds on to little treasures like that. What is it that you treasure? Is it something that someone special to you gave you, or perhaps something that helps you keep special memories fresh in your mind? Whatever it is that you treasure, be sure to take good care of it. After all, all the money in the world likely wouldn’t be able to get another one for you.

  1. We will certainly treasure this thought, Chris! It is truly heartfelt and thoughtful. I often wonder what becomes of my notes and letters to others. It is not often to have such an appreciative response! We are very happy that we could share some of our fondest memories with you. Looking forward to more soon!

  2. Hi brother, I am so proud of you! And, so thankful that our note and our wedding are so thoughtfully treasured. For us, too, the wedding holds many precious memories, of which one of the most precious is of your presence. Your smile. Thank you for being there with us. Another treasured moment would be some of the times we laughed so hard we cried as a family…like when I dumped that whole water glass on my head! Family is such a treasure, and I am very grateful for each of you. With love,
    Your sister

  3. This makes me think of what is important to me and what REALLY matters in life. It’s easy to get caught up in monetary things, but people and the moments we hold in our hearts are what count.
