For this week’s challenge Krista has given us the challenge of something we treasure.
I am a bit late with this post. Sorry about that!
I searched my mind for something that I treasure and try as I might, I could not think of an object. Then it dawned on me that I was looking for the wrong thing.
I realised that I don’t treasure objects (sure, I have collections of things I love) but what I treasure the most besides my husband and family is my health. Without that, I have nothing!
So far, I’ve been blessed with incredibly good health but have seen my ageing parents suffer ill health and saw Alzheimer take the essence of what was my mother and leave us only with her husk. I’ve seen friends have nervous breakdowns who still can’t function and people dwindle away with cancer. I’ve seen more than enough to realise that health is the be all and end all of life!
So, in posting the photos for this challenge, I’m simply taking a bow in gratitude for the good health that has allowed me to see some of nature’s greatest gifts.
These are some of my treasures!
