    I, too am a follower of Christ. I am also a pastor and there are at least 98 other things I could write. I loved the way you told about yourself. Very creative and refreshing.

    I have to go along with northpointcc. I enjoyed your 100 things. We actually have alot in common, only I have a 1 yr old Chesapeak..he thinks he’s human..and I treat him like he is! My daughter, in the Coast Guard, is expecting my first grandchild any day now..my children are perfect(sigh). They are my biggest Joy, and my biggest sorrow. My son suffered a TBI (traumatic brain injury) In an accident caused by a drunk driver. Most important, I too am a Christian, and have been blessed with one miricle after another. My son just started college, struggling, but we are so proud. God is good! Peace. I enjoyed my visit!

    What part of Florida did you live in? I live near Clearwater.

    I’d love to live in California – somewhere near Arcadia or Pasadena.

    I too love Bubble baths… or baths with fizzies or salts.

    I really love your 100th post post. This was so cute and neat. I like yours because of the way it reads like a story, it’s interesting, funny, honest, and it sounds like you’ve encountered a few things in your life that are different now, if nothing but your way of thinking:).

  5. hopped onto your blog today and enjoyed this post! #64 especially gave me a chuckle.
