1. MY CHILDREN
I’m most thankful for my children-my reason for living. Because of them my life has facets I could never have imagined.
2. MY WIFE
Are you kidding me? She’s put up with my nonsense for over 30 years. Since Mother Theresa is gone, somebody has got to bear the great burdens of the world!
3. MY CHURCH
I don’t know what it is about this tiny one-room country church. It was built in 1834. I’ve been going there for 30 years, and I just get the feeling my prayers are being heard when I bow my head.
4. OLD FRIENDS
I like making new friends, and I know many will be lasting, but there’s nothing like the peeps you grew up with, who will give you the same grief they did in fifth grade. You can say what you’re feeling, and there’s no drama.
5. GREAT WINE
I would call it a simple pleasure, but there’s nothing simple about it. There’s a lot in a glass that can be appreciated when the fruit has been grown, picked and aged the proper way. Of course it doesn’t hurt that it gives you a buzz.
If you go to the Winter Olympics and don’t want to stand in line for the snowboarders, you can always get a good seat at curling!
