- Family - that we are all together safe and sound is the best gift ever
- The three basics of life for my family - food, shelter, and clothing, and of course the paycheck that makes it possible
- Friends, online & off
- Having been born and bred a citizen of the United States of America - there are so many places where things we consider basic here are unreachable dreams. Not to say there aren't other great places, but I am grateful for living in a democracy.
- last but not least...QUILTING!!!
