Value is placed upon many different things. The old saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” never rang truer.
Some place a great store of worth on the people in their lives, family, friends, and acquaintances.
Others tend to appreciate a nice car, a fine house, or a flashy boat.
Gourmet cooking will be enough to satisfy some foodies. This I know to be true as I fancied myself a chef, learning to cook dishes such as: beef wellington, spanakopita, white pizza, copper river salmon, whole hogs, grilled lobster, and clams carbonara, to mention a few.
Pleasure is derived from music, theater, and a great many other disciplines in the entertainment field.
One valuabled item, the diamond, owes its pricing to the quantity allowed into the market to sell. According to cleanorigin.com, this is attained by releasing only enough diamonds to satisfy the diamond demand, causing the illusion of seemingly lower supply.

Have a great week and don’t forget, God adores you and wants the best for you!
