100 Things

January 19, 2011 at 5:04 pm (Musings...)

My young blogging friend, Tabitha Studer (see her blog link, Team Studer in my blogroll) made a list of 100 thing that made her happy/that she loved.  I took the challenge.  Believe it or not, it wasn’t that easy!  I came up with the first 25 or so immediately, but I needed to become very reflective, very introspective to come up  with the remaining 75.  I spent 24 hours with my journal by my side and as I thought of things, I wrote them down.   Here is my list.  Except for the top 10, they are in no particular order.   I have a new appreciation for what TRULY makes me happy.  I am indeed blessed.
