I may not possess much in the way of material “treasure”, wealth or riches in the form of money or jewels or gold and silver. But when I think about the things that I treasure most, my family, my friends, my life, my memories, I realize that I am truly blessed with riches that are much more valuable than monetary wealth. Like many people, I have some little things that I treasure as well, things that were gifts from loved ones or have sentimental meaning for one reason or another. I have a little wooden box that my daughter painted and gave me for my birthday years ago. In this “treasure box” I keep some of these little mementos that have special meaning to me. A necklace that my husband gave me, a crystal from my sister, my father’s Army Technical Sergeant pin from WWII, an abalone bracelet that I received as a gift many years ago, one of the last letters that my mother wrote to me…these are my treasures.
