The things that matter most are not things. At least not to me.
I have heard it said that when you are on your deathbed, you don’t wish you had spent more time at work. More often it is…I wish I had spent more time with my family.
The “things” that matter most to me are the family and friends I love and care about.
And who love and care about me.
What else matters?
That I am fortunate enough to have a roof over my head and enough food to eat…
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF THINGS LIT FROM WITHIN.
One of my favorite Christmas decorations/ornaments is a “lit from within” glass globe featuring an angel inside. A special gift from a special friend a few years ago.
It can either be hung from a tree branch or placed on a flat surface. In our case, this year the flat surface is perfect…since we are not putting up a tree for the first time in over 40 years. Empty nesters that we are, we are flying from the nest to celebrate with our hosting-for-the-holiday adult children.
In the meantime…this Angel will rest on our mantel and continuously spread Christmas cheer with a flick of a switch.

While taking a walk on a bright, sunny day in late September, I was distracted by a very large swarm of butterflies. Stopping me in my tracks.
They were accompanied by a few bees – all flying in and amongst wild asters growing next to the walking path. I had never seen so many Monarch butterflies at one time. Busy, busy, busy!
Fortunately they didn’t seem to mind my presence as I snapped multiple photos trying my best not to interrupt their important work.
A few in the group perched still enough for this photo!
