      Ebower- Your lists reminds me of a wonderful passage of Scripture. It says, "In everything give thanks."

      Phil Plasma: I think it took a few days. I did have a little help from my 'Internet friends' as you can see. That's definitely up there on my personal list as well. Thanks for your comment. :)

      Wow that is quite the list. I can only imagine how long it must have taken to come up with 100 items.

      Falling into bed after a long day comes close to the top of my list as my days have been rather long lately.

      Voted up!

      Voted up. I almost never get back to sleep once I'm awake. I have a hard time getting to sleep cause I think about things I need to do. When I wake up the list starts again.

      Cyndi10: Thanks! Toe jam is on the list, because one of my friends suggested it and I just went with it. lol Yes, I was scared the first time I drived to and within Atlanta by myself. I'm glad you enjoyed this. :)

      These were great! I have one question, Why is toe jam on the list. And losing a fear is great. I finally driving on the highway nightmare they call 285 here in Atlanta has finally stopped intimidating me and it feels great to ignore those crazy driving trucks and the people who obviously think they are on the autoban going over 80 miles an hour! Enjoyed these.

      Ebower, thanks for the reminder! We have to habitually keep things in perspective. When you hear about your neighbor's problems, then you're gently reminded you have no problems at all. Good hub. Thank you much.

      V. good! I particularly liked the part about enjoying God's love in view of His Son having died at the Cross.

      It's all a question of counting our many, many blessings.
