1. Sisters. Biological, adopted, friends who may as well be sisters, sisters in the gospel of Christ. There is nothing like having a sister.
I got to sing with mine today - something that hasn't happened in a while due to an accident that left her practically bed-ridden for the last four years. She is an inspiration to me.
2. Pets. If you don't have one, you should get one. :)
Everyone should have some kind of a pet-or at least a houseplant - something that grows. Something that doesn't talk back. Something that isn't, couldn't be at fault for the stress we sometimes experience in our lives.
We finally have pets again in our house. Two geckos. It was two geckos and some fish, but, well, we aren't very good at this pet thing yet...
Stubby and (name pending) have already provided some laughs and I am grateful. Sometimes we take ourselves far too seriously. Every house needs comic relief.
