My First Thursday Thirteen

I thought I'd try a Thursday Thirteen. I've never done this before so I don't know all the rules. But it seems you are free to pick your own thirteen to list, so I picked:

Thirteen Things That Make Me Smile

1. My family. They make everything worthwhile.

2. My health. I'm so grateful I'm in good health. When it's all said and done, what could be more important?

3. My home. It may be small, but it's a roof over our heads and that is all I need.

4. Living in the U.S. Even if you don't agree with the government or even your neighbor, you have the freedom to say so.

5. My car. I like it and I don't know what I'd do without it.

6. My friends, near and far away. A good laugh with a friend can work miracles!

7. My friend Debbie in Virginia. I grew up with her and we are still great friends all these years later. When nothing else is working in my life, just thinking of her friendship makes me smile.

8. Chocolate! You really didn't think I'd leave that out, did you?

9. Our jobs. I've moaned and grumbled a lot over the years about how badly we are paid, but we have pretty good job stability. Thank God

10. My faith. I truly don't know how I got through my days before I became a Christian. The hope it brings helps me survive anything.

11. My brother and sister. We fight, laugh and drive each other nuts. But who else knows me that well? I'm proud of them both.

12. My computer. May sound silly, but it provides me with connections I otherwise would not have and answers to so many questions I otherwise would be stuck with.

13. Reading a good novel. When nothing else works during my day, looking forward to reading at night helps me get through the day!
