Michelle Striet Posted 11 months ago What is the most precious thing in your life and why? My sons are by far the most precious thing(s) in my life. At 33 years old and single I felt my life would never feel complete. I realized children were what my heart desperately wanted and needed. At 50, I have 2 teenage sons that I would literally lay down my life for...they are such miracles and precious gifts. I know I am blessed.
