If you could only take one thing with you, what would you take?
I asked my daughter this question the other day, in the midst of disciplining her, and her response, without missing a beat, was “you.” Not something material; like her favorite bear, or her favorite pet, or any of the Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus paraphenalia that covers her room, but something directly from the heart. The sincerity and purity of her response blew me away. It also got me thinking, what one thing would I take? Not just from my home and all the stuff I have collected over the years, but what one thing would I take from this life?
So, I ask again, if you could only take one thing with you, what would you take?
My first response would be that I want to take Jeremy with me. If I had a child, I would take them. Jeremy is my other half, we are one person, I wouldn’t be complete if he wasn’t there with me. Then I started thinking about wisdom and knowledge that I have gained while I am here. Part of me would want to take that as well. So that would be my second choice. Jeremy is first by a long shot though.
