  1. Thanks for the reminder! I always think of my grandmother who was 96 when she died, but she had no possessions left. She was in an old age home. Only her family and memories. Possessions did not last!

      You’re welcome Karen. Can’t take those possessions with you anyway…

  2. The right people for sure! It’s about quality!

  3. I’m definitely for people over possessions and I find the older I get, the tougher my criteria becomes for ‘people’ in my life.

      I’m with you Simone. My criteria hasn’t changed much but I am less tolerant of crap, the older I get 🙂

  4. I like this. I treasure people, but this post makes me think how do I treasure and do my people feel treasured.

      Valid point Melissa. Why don’t you ask them? Would be interesting to hear their views on it…

  5. i treasure those near and dear to me, and its not a whole lot of people, just a selection of family and friends that i do treasure … quality over quantity … boom!

    • spiritedmama1

      Definitely quality over quantity. It’s normally the treasured people that will stick with you to the very end…And isn’t that all that should matter in the end?

  6. An important lesson to remember. #Lekkerlinky

      Indeed it is. Makes you think about where your “focus” is…

  7. My parents led by example, and it stuck. People – the right ones – far outweigh possessions. I hope this is something Zee learns from us as well.
    Thanks for linking up to the #LekkerLinky

      I’m sure she will! Kids learn by “watching” us and mimic our behaviour, be it consciously or subconsciously 🙂

  8. I am a sentimental fool so yes I do have a few things I treasure. My dad passed away when I was 2 and my mom had managed to keep a few of his things. I treasure those. I also treasure my mom’s scrap book she made I feel like it is a glimpse of her teenage years.

    In saying that. People and as you said the right people can make all the difference in the world. They can create the memories you can reflect on when you have nothing.

    Looking forward to more thought provoking lessons. #lekkerlinky

      I am somewhat sentimental too 🙂 but prefer not to place emphasis on the materialistic possessions…rather focus on the people
