A few moments ago Beth was getting up off the couch and her necklace, which contains two silver rings and a heart pendant, came undone. We immediately noticed the heart pendant hanging on but the rings were no longer attached. These rings are heirlooms given to her by people she loves. Stopping in her tracks she declared; “This is not good! We have to find them!” Everything else we were doing and going to do was put on hold. Before I knew it I was on the floor with a flashlight looking under furniture, in nooks and corners. Nothing! Then I checked a blanket on the couch and “Whew!” there they lay. Life started again.
Great reminder that there are just “things” and the “things that matter.” Knowing the difference is knowing what life is and is not.
