Day 2219: It’s What’s Inside That Counts

Yesterday, when Michael and I were inside a Target Store, counting the moments until  my son was going to arrive from inside the United Kingdom to inside Boston’s Logan Airport, I saw this inside the Target gift section:

Inside my mind, I counted several ways that “It’s What’s Inside That Counts” could count, counting on that to be the title of my next blog.

No matter what our appearance at whatever age, it’s what’s inside that counts.

No matter  what we’re wearing, it’s what’s inside that counts.

We may hide,

and pretend to be something we’re not, but it’s what’s inside that counts, so we might as well be honest.

Let’s see what counts inside the rest of my photos from yesterday.

It’s what’s inside Aaron’s room that counts — it’s Aaron! (And he’s majoring in mathematics —  does that count?)

I’m counting two songs titled “It’s What’s Inside That Counts” — one from Cinderella 2:

and this one from The Mighty Boosh:

It’s what’s inside that counts, so please leave your inside thoughts and feelings inside the comments section, below.

Countless thanks to all who help me create these posts and  to my readers, who — of course! — count.

  5. Indeed! And thank you for your loving spirit. Enjoy your time with your son! ♥(ˆ⌣ˆԅ)

  6. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for you and fly Ann!!!

  7. Welcome home Aaron and congratulations to Michael on another amazing meal. His culinary skill really shows how it’s what’s inside a recipe that really counts.

    • It’s what’s inside you, Michael, Aaron, and me that counts, Chris. I have now counted one error in all your countlessly wonderful comments on this blog: Michael did not make that meal. I found that delicious cuisine inside a wonderful Peruvian restaurant near Logan Airport. Every once in a while, Michael gets a break from cooking — it helps keeps him sane on the inside.

      Inside, I’m wishing you, your wife, everyone you love, and everyone who loves you a wonderful Christmas ! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

  8. I think it is what’s inside that put that stunning smile on your face

  9. Yes generally it is what’s inside that counts unless what’s inside is mean and ugly then it should be discarded

    • I agree, Joanne, and I would never discard anything you say, because it all counts a great deal. Merry Christmas to you and yours! ❤ ❤

  10. What’s inside you is joy. You look like the happiest person in the world in that picture. And no doubt are at the moment!

  11. Thank you, too. And Merry Christmas!! Enjoy your family time ❤
