What Are Your Greatest Treasures? Find Them Here…

“What is love? I have met in the streets a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, the water passed through his shoes and stars through his soul.”—Victor Hugo—

I found a most interesting image in the end cut on a 6X6 post. I paid attention to it, and it led me to today’s beautiful quote from Victor Hugo which led me to another observation:

Over the ages, there have always been countless numbers of people who had little or nothing. People who didn’t know where their next meal would come from—poor people.

But, over the ages, these people have always had three treasures: hope, love, and laughter. They have known that these three things would help them to live through their roller-coaster lives.

Sometimes we become wrapped up in our possessions, our drama, and our self-adopted stress. Sometimes we lose sight of our true treasures. Remember them, hope, love, and laughter.

Share a smile with someone less fortunate than you.
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
