Our Favourite Things

Our favourite things are usually old or made by hand.

This morning at the Carers Group we talked about our favourite things. I was really taken aback by the beautiful wood-work displayed by one of our carers. He makes birds nests out of wood and fashions them in all different styles, there was the replica of a windmill, a house with a satellite dish, Stephenson’s rocket, and many others all different and all beautifully made by hand. Some of the other favourite things turned out to be photographs and some old, much loved teddies.

It just struck me as strange that for most of us our favourite things were simple, virtually worthless from a financial point of view, or things we have made by hand from scraps of material. Not one of our favourite things had any monetary value, yet they would be the items we would keep and treasure forever.
