A pile of nails in your hand does not amount to much. But imagine beyond these nails to see the plain walls about you hung with pictures. Pictures soaked in family memories – that first holiday by the beach, the meal celebrating granny’s 90th, the wedding of your eldest. The nails do not amount to much – seeing beyond the nails is priceless.
