What would you say?

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.

Like loyalty.
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.

What five things would you value above everything else?

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I think you’ve got it right. 🙂

  2. Just enough money to live comfortable, not worry if a catastrophe came, and do a bit of travelling, on the cheap.
    Communication (and fun times) with the significant other, my son and my grandbabies…
    I’ve had enough “close calls” with accidents and death, every day I wake up and can get out of bed.
    Having come to a point in my life where I can volunteer, enjoy it, and actually make a difference with causes that are important to me.
    Loyalty. I don’t require a lot of people in my daily life, or really want too many, but those I do let in, I appreciate it when they have my back.
    The sacrifice of this countries’ many veterans.
