In the hallway of my house is a box with thousands of old pictures. Treasure I walked past without thinking. This week my son took a day to go through some of those, and we shared the treasure of past days together. He inspired a beautiful day.
Pictures of scenery, sunsets long gone were set aside, barely noted. The pictures of people, now much older, or passed on, are now priceless, and cherished.
I realized more deeply the value of those pictures as I looked at them and it was an emotional day for me. I am not John Wayne.
Those were days of film and taking the film to be processed at the drugstore. Pictures were taken one at a time and processing was expensive. How many people now wish they had been less thrifty and had more pictures of those long past days.
I found treasure today, pictures of family, that for me are priceless and irreplaceable.
Do you have a box tucked away with photos from days past? Time well spent for me was pulling out that box and smiling broadly with the odd tear.
Thanks for reading.
