Whatever our economic status, we all have treasures — items from which we will be parted only as a last resort.
As I look around the room in which I am writing this article, I see books. Lots of books.
Books are among my most prized possessions.
Should I some day have to downsize and not have room for them all, I already know there are some books from which I will not be parted.
They will go with me even if I have to stack them on my bed.
Some things are treasures because of what they are.
Others are prized because of who gave them to us and/or what they represent.
