The Best Things in Life…

Are Not Things

The Best Things In Life
The Best Things In Life

Years ago, I was out shopping with the guy I was dating at the time – I’ll call him “John.” We saw the refrigerator magnet in the picture to the right. It seemed like such a nice sentiment. “The best things in life are not things.” It’s so true, isn’t it? I pointed it out to “John” and he turned around and bought it for me.

In my head I was thinking, “Dude! Don’t you get it? It isn’t about buying the magnet.” But I remained silent, except to say “Thank you.” It has been on my refrigerator a long time now. Much longer than the relationship lasted.

Each time I see it, I snicker a bit. Then I smile, reminded of the good times we had in spite of everything else that may have happened.

Only recently did it dawn on me that perhaps “John” did get it. Perhaps he knew that every time I looked at the magnet I would think of him.
