Material Possessions

I have VERY few items in life that I care about. I care about my wedding ring, but mostly for the symbolism and the hope that one day my daughter will care about it. Other than that, as I sit here and type this, I can't come up with one other thing I would be upset about losing. I LOVE nice things, and I am thankful that I have so very many, but I don't really love anything enough to worry about losing it. If I hear a weird noise or something is off, I always think, "Take whatever you want, just don't take my kids!" A little silent prayer or mantra. Today there was some creepy man in my yard (I think he was working on the neighbor's house), and I thought, "The kids aren't here, so take whatever you need and be on your way." To me, my kids are my life. I need nothing else, as long as I have them. I know life may be overwhelming most days, and that I complain about them and most days they drive me CRAZY, but I would be nothing without them!

Well said. I wish the entire USA had their priorities this straight.

I feel the same way. I do have some material possesions that I would be sad to lose, but they most likely woudn't be anything a robber would even want to take! :-)
