I spent the weekend having a yard sale and getting rid of things that I don't need. I actually have come to realize that most of the things we think we need are only things that we want. I had to ask myself.....do I really need tons of kitchen gadgets that I have not used in years? Or tons of craft items? Will I ever use them? Does having them give me worth or value as a person? No, it does not. Who a person is has nothing to do with what they have...or the job they have...or where they live....or how much money they make. Everyone comes from the same source and that is where they will return to after this incarnation is over. The older I become, the more I realize that we give too much meaning to material possessions. How do we become so attached to them? Is it because they came from a relative who we loved who is now no longer here? We don't need *things* to remind us of that person or even pictures. That person is always with us.....always in our heart.
