Value

I grew up poor and value people, experiences and memories over material things. I want my children to grow learning the same

  1. I agree with you wholeheartedly! I grew up with very little money as well, but my mother brought joy, adventure and lots of love into our home–a joy that touched everyone who came into our lives. Material things can in no way compare with the treasured memories I have. 🙂

  2. I grew up happy, didn’t really want for anything apart from the big stuff and respected my parents more than anything. Nowadays I find that I have no desire for material goods. I am happy and secure in the knowledge I have friends, family, a roof over my head, food in my belly and 4 whales to get me about. It’s all about the head and heart not the wallet.

    Well said. Unplugging our children who are influenced heavily by their tek peers is an ongoing battle. But its not impossible. Our memories of family, love and what’s good will eventually come to pass and fade away; if our children don’t learn to appreciate them too. I have hope that most people are good and want to slow of the age of information and embrace our lives with our hearts not just our minds.

  4. Absolutely love this quote and so much truth in it! Its a challenge amidst peer pressure and the evolving materialistic nature of the world we live in. But the ability to be content is such a lovely treasure that we must pass down to our children.

    Truth. My family was fortunate to be blessed, but my parents required hard work. I’m so glad now because I can really appreciate the value of hard work.
