To a child, the best things in life are free.
Walking in the woods with your parents, stumbling along a river bank, jumping from boulder to boulder, skipping smooth stones across the water, looking up at the tall pine trees, and, of course, gathering pine cones to take home and make a wreath for the front door.
In the classic children’s book, The Littlest Angel, the angel, sent too soon to heaven from earth, brought along a Robin’s egg, two smooth stones, a bright and colorful butterfly, and the worn leather collar of his dog he played with as a child.
I would have included a pine cone from a walk with my parents in the woods on a bright summer day.
