Robert hit the nail on the head - it's the simple things of life, not vast amounts of gold and silver, wherein the treasure lies !

[one of the first things my wife and I did down here in Florida was to collect shells and display them in vases around the house]

What treasure ... both in the walks and in the collecting.

Did you collect those shells? They're beautiful; and I agree with the quote. I agree, but I do sometimes dream what I'd do with a million dollars. :) Thanks for your encouragement. The Valentine mobile on the door is something I made and embroidered with my girls two years ago. I'll show a close-up of it on Valentine's Day.

I love this Leslie. I remember years ago, a girlfriend of mine and I went to jade Cambria, thinking we would collect some jade on a beach that was said to have some. We collected many colored green stones thinking we had much treasure. In reality, they were simply pretty stones, but we spent the afternoon laughing and sharing old memories together while we gathered them. That was the wonder of it. We were rich indeed!

I don't know, but I hope he's right, as I have a taste for collecting sea gifts.
