True Treasures of this world

This morning I woke up to my little dude smiling in my face saying Happy Fathers day daddy!

Behind him was my beautiful wife with a plate of bacon, eggs, sausage, and toast.  The bacon was lined up to form a heart.  Everyone crawled into bed and we shared a wonderful breakfast together with no TV or internet.  The smell of the bacon crept down the hallway to the dog beds, they decided they wanted to be part of this too and jumped on up playfully stealing pieces of bacon from my son’s shirt.

These are the moments and time in this life that I treasure the most.  This was like waking up in a Dragon’s treasure horde.  I wouldn’t trade all the gems, jewels, gold and silver for what I have.

While I may not be wealthy or rich in a material sense compared to the elites of this world, I know I have more wealth and feel like one of the richest men in the world today!

You can spend all your life chasing after those materials things and casting everything and everyone else around you to the wayside in your pursuit of wealth, but for me those things are only illusions to keep you from the true treasures in this world.  Family, friends, and love.

The rest of this story is between the wife and I.  As that treasure chest remains locked under privacy and respect for the rest of you.

I hope that you too can find the true treasures this world has to offer.  It is out there.  And is guarded by the great Wyrms of misinformation and some ideologies that would tell you this way of life is wrong and harmful to women.

My wife loves to cook and take care of the house.  It makes her happy, as It is not a one way street.  I pitch in when I can.  We share the encumbrance load of the party campaign in life.

Just as all things should be… Balanced.

    Thanks Bobbylass! Nice to see others with similar values stop by with your comment.
    I have never really blogged before, But love to write. So I think I will kind of mix the two together to see what I can do.
    As being able to capture the attention span of a total stranger to convey something important is part of why I do this. When I was young and living the fast life I never considered these things. It was all about making that dollar. Which to be fair, now that I have that dollar I can focus on what really matters.
    Hope you had a great day!

Thanks for the story! I think Tolkien placed some of these ideas in The Hobbit. The only way for Bilbo to grow as a person was to take the risk, go on the adventure, and seek the treasure (guarded by a great wyrm). I’m glad to see others place appropriate value on the family as true treasures in life.
Keep sharing your takes on life! It was a pleasure to read in part because you’re a very good writer. Cheers!

    Tolkien did indeed! You are very perceptive as my writing is influenced very heavily by his work! This was a big nod to his message and what I have learned in my time on this green Earth.
    Thanks for stopping by Mystic Scholars. Cheers my friend!
