One Thing

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?
