You are so talented !!! It would would have taken me weeks to come up with a great list.
If I was going to add to your list I'd have to say, Jonny the bagger and then little Mattie (whose last name starts with an S and was an Oprah favorite before he died)
I'm thankful for my children who every day make me laugh and also make me see "life" through their eyes (which is so much more exciting than through my own)
Thanks for a fun post !!!
