Hubby asked me a funny thing this morning, something I really had to think about and actually came up lacking.
He asked me what five things I valued above all other.
Sometimes he tries to catch me out with trick questions, and I honestly thought this was one of them, so decided on things that I feel money can’t buy.
Some people may think I’m naive but I know Hubby is totally loyal to me and I him.
I trust him implicitly. He is my rock, my protector as well as my spouse, lover, partner, confidante and best friend.
I have always been insecure and lacking in confidence, or was until we met. I am secure in the knowledge that he will never leave me, will be there for me through thick and thin, and will never let me down.
I have never lived by myself, and one of my fears is being totally alone. We are like a pair of old slippers, a bit scuffed round the edges but comfortable in each others company, content to know the other is there.
I couldn’t come up with a fifth.
Now, if I was on a desert island and could only have a few luxury items (and I hope it would be an endless supply) top of my list would be soft toilet paper, though I’m not fussed about the colour, and bags of fruit pastilles!
I suppose some people would think of material things like washing machines, freezers, fast cars, posh houses and pots of money. IMO money can’t buy you happiness, but I suppose you can live miserably in style with all mod cons and servants if you wanted.
I would just like enough to make ends meet, have a little bit left over, and never have to worry about paying the next bill.
So think about it.
What five things would you value above everything else?
