All That Glitters

Simple treasures

Simple treasures

All that glitters doesn’t necessarily glitter. Sometimes it shimmers, sparkles or twinkles. Other times all that glitters is more of a feeling in your heart than anything you can ever see with your eyes or buy in a store. The simplest pleasures and smallest treasures are what glitter and shine the brightest for me. Doing glitter and glue crafts with my daughters, receiving handmade gifts from them and watching them open their Christmas presents are just a few of those treasures.

Walking in the falling snow of big, fluffy flakes and seeing some unexpected sights are yet more treasures…

One of the biggest gifts is knowing that even when I’m home alone with Jazz snuggled up next to me on the couch, I’m not really alone. My family and friends are never too awful far and I know that they care about me and are thinking of me this holiday. No wrap can hold that, no bow can decorate that and not even the shiniest, most shimmering faceted jewel can ever compare.
