No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure.
~ Emma Goldman (1869 – 1940)

Unforgettable Childhood Treasures

The treasures of childhood can linger in our hearts and memories throughout life. The anticipation of each new day bubbled up with joy. We were filled with great dreams and imagination. Our biggest desire was to share it all with those who cared for us and kept us safe.

Throughout life, it seems, the desire to share our special treasures continues. Now they might be dreams for the future or secrets of the heart.

We might go through processes of change, rediscovery, or new beginnings. No matter where we are in that process, there is much joy when friends share experiences with each other.

It doesn’t matter whether they are ribbons and shells, or understanding, time, and friendship. Sharing our most valued, genuine treasures will make life’s journey unforgettable.
