In Her Pockets (Laundry Treasures)

My youngest daughter loves to find treasure.  Anything that sparkles or glistens on her travels is fair game.  Quite often, it will be a simple thread or a small button.  Forgettable things that others wouldn't bother to pick up.

She is a curator for a personal collection of pennies, rocks and erasers.  Often her art will be expressed through the hodgepodge of things that she has discovered.  The ordinary is extraordinary and even a shred of glitter is magic.

I love this about her. 

As I emptied her pockets in preparation of starting a load of laundry, two extra items popped out at me.

Do you see them?

Sometimes, the best moments in life filled with the ever-present type 1 diabetes, are the most random. 

In spite of her "extras", she is just a little girl with a big imagination and a love of finding treasure.
