What’s your most treasured possession?
o questions asked, my children. Though the job as a mom can be very weary and wearing, I cannot imagine my life without children either. There are days I so wish for some quietness, to go away for a couple of days alone, just to read and write uninterrupted, but I know I’d miss my kids terribly. I know someday I will have an empty next, and miss the kids running up and down the hallway waking us up in the morning. I may even miss finding the empty cereal bowls on the counter in the morning. But after burying two children, and knowing that indescribable heart pain, yet, having the hope to see my children again in heaven, I know they are my most treasured possessions and the “thing” I can take to heaven someday.
I’ve other treasures – albums filled up with my children’s pictures and drawings, special figurines from my husband and family, the few things from my childhood, etc., and yes, even my little puppy . . . but it’s all so temporary . . . my loved ones in heaven with me is for ever and that’s the desire and my hope for my treasured children.
