Every once in a while someone will throw out a question that makes you think. Recently one of Jermaine's coworkers asked him what the most treasured possession that he owned was. He then posed the question to me and I had to contemplate for about a week before deciding. So I'll pose the question to you - What is your most treasured possession? ...it's the thing that if your house burned down and you could only save one item, you'd chose that one thing.
Jermaine's answer was predictable. He said something to the effect, "Since I don't own my family, so I can't choose that, so I'd have to say, my bible". Now I will do what wives do and speak for him. I think that his most valuable possession is his ipod. His bible can be replaced. Sure, not the underlines, or the notes in the columns, but he could pick up a new bible tomorrow if he had to. The Word of God is a wonderful answer, but EENNHH (that was suppose to be the buzzer sound, that goes off when your wrong - gameshow style). I think that his ipod is that one item that he'd like to save if the house were to burn down. Jermaine has spent hours and hours carefully selecting songs and sermons for his listening pleasure. He uses his ipod several times every day. He loves that darn thing, it's one of a kind, customized specifically for him.
I would save the computer. I know that's a lame thing to say, but I'm being real here. Almost all of my pictures are on it and I would hate to lose those. I would also hate to lose my poetry journal, but I do have some poems that I've already typed up on the computer, so saving the computer would also help me with that. I've also scanned in some of the children's art work, so the computer, as lame as it may be, is actually a very pragmatic selection.
I know that my nephew Will would choose "Elly" (Wendy probably would too, for that matter). Amaya would chose her clip on binky, and Amelle would definitely select her pink blanket.
Sooo...tell me, what is your most treasured possession? (You can't use people, so no cheating!) What's the one thing that would break your heart if you lost it?
