Valuing the good in our lives

On the surface, the genuine value of something may not be readily apparent. For instance, I recall watching a child choose between a shiny new penny and a crumpled one-dollar bill. She grabbed the penny and went off to play. Being just a preschooler, she hadn't learned the value of the wrinkled piece of paper she left behind.

To place a true estimate of worth on something, we need to consider more than appearances or even monetary value. An old family photograph, for instance, is probably worth very little to others, yet it may be very precious, even priceless, to members of the family. In a way, isn't it what's behind something that determines its value?
