THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE – October 4, 2015

The Best Things In Life Are Free

~ Joyce Fields

There’s an old song with the title, “The Best Things In Life Are Free.”  The song is old, but that statement will ring true forever.

As a society, we are being “trained,” “conditioned,” “brainwashed”–whatever term you care to use–to believe that we should think highly of, and place value on, material “things”—expensive cars, designer clothes, designer shoes, jewelry, cameras, cell phones, video games, etc., etc., etc.

Don’t be fooled!

In that song, “The Best Things In Life Are Free,” the lyrics describe some of those “best things”:

  • The moon and the stars; the flowers in spring, the robins that sing; the moonbeams that shine–they’re yours, they’re mine.
  • And love can come to everyone.

Love.  That’s probably the VERY “best thing.”

And money can’t buy the “best things.”

How much money does it cost to listen to the problems or concerns of a loved one or good friend?

How much money does it cost to share laughter with a child?

How much money does it cost to give or receive a warm hug?

How much money does it cost to extend a helping hand?

How much money does it cost to share a smile?

How much money does it cost to encourage or support another?

How much money does it cost to forgive?

How much money does it cost to remind someone that they are loved?

See?!  The best things in life ARE free.

What comprises your “Best Things In Life Are Free” list?
