  1. I think you should write those books, (reading your answers) wink. Keeping you in prayer.

  3. Good health is so underrated as well.

  4. Amen to #28. My 56-year-old brother-in-law died suddenly on the morning of New Year's Eve. It has really rattled the whole family from the oldest to the youngest. The minister even talked about the funeral about the uncertainty of life and how we should make every effort to "live well, love much, and laugh often."

  5. I wish my husband was healthy again. He really needs to take better care of himself but he does not listen to me.

    Always tell your loved ones that you love them...even when you are mad.

  6. I love your new header, too! it's Amazing! And, don't fret about telling it like it is, you encouraged me to think and reconstruct what happened to me, and not just float along like a bubble while saying nothing to anyone! Frankly, the Health Industry scares the bejeebers out of me.

    Yes, write that damned book! ;o)

  7. Number 44 . . . I can recognize a few constellations, but not very many. Living in the country, you would definitely have the advantage over me on this one.
