Cars, trucks, boats, homes, property you name it, all those possessions I've had, but do they really qualify as a 'PRIZED POSSESSION'? I think NOT!
A few weeks ago we decided to clear out one of our back rooms so I could setup my reloading equipment again and Lori would have space to make her wreaths. When I started cleaning out an old computer desk I came across something that brought back a ton of pleasant memories. Approximately 17 years ago I was deep in the dumps, coming off of a really rough divorce. One particular day I was in an extra foul mood when my oldest son Alex comes toddling up to me, hugs my neck and tells me 'Daddy I've got sumthin to make you feel all better!' then he gets this sheepish grin on his face and pulls an item out of his pocket placing it in the palm of my hand. The item itself was irrelevant, but the sentiment of a four year old made all the difference in the world to me. His actions that day had a lasting impact and actually spurred me into getting back on my feet to start that march called life again. I've always known where the item he gave me was and it's always followed me over the years and God willing it'll be placed in the box along with this old body when I'm done with it.
Do you have a prized possession that can never be replaced? Mine is the most valuable pinecone in the world!
Here's the little boy that helped me more than he'll ever know and the man he's become.
