Top 5 Life Lessons

I read an article off MSN here that I am quoting:

"What a person learns and leaves is as individual as his fingerprints. But I found some heartening insights into common themes in this new research from Priceless Legacy, a company that turns interviews with older adults into life
stories in print or video format. An analysis of its projects shows that the top five life lessons shared by people ages 65 to 104 are:

1) The simple things matter most.
2) Humor and time cure most pains.
3) There's more satisfaction in giving than getting. Service to others is the most satisfying activity.
4) Choose your spouse carefully. It will be your most important decision.
5) Work hard and in a field or role that you enjoy."

So it's me again...I commented on your other blog a few minutes ago...but I was looking around your uplifting blog and just had to say something! You're goals gave me the impression that you're LDS? That is wonderful because I am too. Also I hope you get your alpaca farm someday! We've been into llamas and alpacas and were able to own a few for a while. Lovely creatures. Ooooo and French Bulldogs are hidiously adorable and I hope you're able to have one of them too! I myself am a huge fan of photography and want to be 'professional' someday. I love writing too! It appears we're a lot alike. Good luck with those dreams!

Structure...isn't that one of the hardest things to get into each day?? I struggle with consistency and structure like none else!

I know things are rough right now, keep holding onto the things that bring you happiness! Keep your loved ones and animals close!
